I think I installed the mirror you recommended. Why I say "I think" is
that I put the URL for that mirror inside the
file /etc/yum.repos.d/dag.repo like so:

name=Dag RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux

name=Dag RPM Repository for Red Hat Enterprise Linux Mirror

And then I ran the YUM install command again, and it worked.

But I notived it ran without saying anything about checking mirrors, so
perhaps the original Dag repository just happened to start working again

So... do I have the mirror URL reference in the right place?
