Sorry, I should have said that my server is running Centos-5.3.
If there is a problem on my system, it is at the server.
I ran wget on the server, and got the same result.
I also get the same result for EPEL:
[tim at helen ~]$ sudo yum update
Loaded plugins: downloadonly, fastestmirror, priorities,
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
Could not retrieve mirrorlist 
[Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Not Found
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: epel
using the mirrorlist line in /etc/yum.repos.d/epel.repo :

Also wget fails similarly:
[tim at helen ~]$ wget http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist
--14:43:39-- http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist
Resolving mirrors.fedoraproject.org...

HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
14:43:39 ERROR 404: Not Found.
This machine is running x86_64 CentOS:
[tim at helen ~]$ cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 5.3 (Final)
