I'm sorry, I was in "Deer in the headlights mode". I should have said
repos specifically. I have had these enabled:
 * epel: mirror.its.uidaho.edu
 * adobe-linux-i386: linuxdownload.adobe.com
 * jpackage-fc: planetmirror.com
 * jpackage-generic-nonfree: planetmirror.com
 * jpackage-rhel: planetmirror.com
 * rpmforge: fr2.rpmfind.net
 * jpackage-generic: planetmirror.com
 * base: mirror.its.uidaho.edu
 * updates: centos.mirrors.tds.net
 * centosplus: mirror.centos.org
 * addons: mirror.centos.org
 * jetty6localrepo:
 * extras: mirror.centos.org

With Fedora, we had some problems between differing repos. So, I'd
enable one and set another to 0, as I knew my way around. Which are
verboten to mix within CentOS? Any on that list that need to be
scratched out?? Thanks for your assistance. Ric
