Slow update

On my FC3 machine I get the same slowness occasionally while using "yum 
update".  If you press CTRL-C while yum is trying to download, it 
cancels the connection and makes another connection to another mirror, 
picking up right where it left off.  I had to do CTTRL-C several times 
once when each mirror was pretty slow until it finally found a fast one.
