Yes, I did place rpmforge, mirrors.rpmforge, rhel-mondo, and rpmforge in 
the repos.  I had not installed the protect base or the priorities at 
the time of the intitial update.  Just now, I ran update with the other 
repos disabled and got about 5 libraries updated.  Now, what is the fix 
to update the rest of the things that amount to about 30 or so 
packages?  I will get the priorities and protect base before running any 
further updates.
