i used mirror.steadfast.net for web site and centos/5.0/os/i386/CentOS/ 
for directory, but i got this error:

Unable to read package metadata.  This may be due to a missing repodata 
directory.  Please ensure that your install tree has been correctly 
generated.  Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: 

any clue what to do.
