I forgot to include my not very interesting yum error message (excerpt from):
Error Downloading Packages:
  gnome-vfs2 - 2.8.1-5.i386: failure: Fedora/RPMS/gnome-vfs2-2.8.1-5.i386.rpm 
from development: [Errno 256] No more mirrors
 to try.
  gettext - 0.14.1-11.i386: failure: Fedora/RPMS/gettext-0.14.1-11.i386.rpm 
from development: [Errno 256] No more mirrors t
o try.

But I'll try again using a mirror site,
or even a list of mirrors as suggested.

Am I right in thinking that there is some entry in yum.conf
which will make yum automatically look for mirrors?
