If you can't retrieve this (mirrorlist
http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?release=5&arch=i386&repo=os) via yum, but
you can via wget on the same machine get the same list ... then that is
very strange.

It is possible that you can see one of the mirrorlist machines and not
the other one.

I can see "tw" based lists are being generated OK.

All the things I can think of that might cause that are related to using
a different YUM than the one in CentOS, or a broken yum (so maybe
reinstall it by hand), or maybe a "transparent proxy" (where yum
sometimes breaks).
