that's a lot of repos :)

for starters: given that this is a CentOS box, disable jpackage-fc.   
you do not want that.

in addition, you should read this wiki page:


and the linked instructions about using the priorities plugin.  with  
that many third-party repositories, you run the risk of getting into  
dependency conflicts.


p.s. wrt your other question about installing cfengine:

[shuff at orannis ~]$ yum -q --disablerepo=* --enablerepo=rpmforge list  
Available Packages
cfengine.i386                            2.2.3-1.el5.rf         rpmforge

that's probably your best start.
