FC3 and FC4 use repository configurations in /etc/yum.repos.d in 
preference to /etc/yum.conf

Remove the entries for repos updates-testing and base from your yum.conf 
(which clash with other entries in /etc/yum.repos.d) to clear these

Your livna repo definition is broken. Remove it from your /etc/yum.conf 
and then do:

# rpm -Uvh

(that's all one line).

Then try your yum command again. You'll probably want to do a "yum 
update" too.
