I have switched to my ftp configuration since updates are still giving 
header errors.  After cleaning yum..verifying hte clean and trying again 
I ma still getting header errors.  This has been ongoing since 4.3 was 
released.  Any ideas?

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.
