I simply mentioned the CPU type because it had been done previously by 
the op. I'm confident the issue has nothing to do with the CPU or kernel 
type. The issue appears to be with some (or all) of the mirrors under 
certain configurations. I was hoping someone with more yum/mirror/repo 
experience would be able to spot the problem if I squeaked - I'm sure 
it's something I can work around, but I wouldn't want it to impact others.
