Thanks for your help... and thanks to Karanbir Singh as well.

After I did a "yum clean all"  I followed it with a yum --obsoletes
update and continued to receive the same error of not finding

I removed the rpmforge depo and performed another yum clean all followed
by yum -y update and everything downloaded without error.

Have others had difficulty with rpmforge?  Is there a way within yum to
keep it active, but to give it a priority as secondary to the normal
CentOS repositories?

Thanks again for your help!!!!
