h'm not.  I don't want to HAVE to reconfigure my clients..nor do i want 
to HAVE to add a proxy line into my yum.conf files.  I actually do agree 
with les it should just work w/o having to screw around with config files.

Please don't accuse me of picking and choosing Bryan.  It is not what i 
did at all.  I chose to add the ftp lines to simply get things working 
again.  it is not something that should have to be done at all.  If i 
had more than 3-5 machine here i would fire up another one as a 
dedicated mirror.

My "Foundation" verse:
Isa 54:17  No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and 
every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt 
condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their 
righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.
