Hi Tim,

You could try firstly this:

prompt> yum update yum

and if you continue with problems, then I suggest this:
Add support for other repositories
 Fedora comes with a ton of software but there are still plenty of packages
of interest to most users that are not included for a variety of reasons.
This is where you find the MP3 plug-in and a ton of other packages. Yum is
now the preferred update format, however the handy RHN icon on the GNOME
task bar that I like (but nobody else does) still seems to be tied to the
old RHN method using up2date.
Before you add repositories it's probably a good idea to make sure your
system is fully updated first. It's still early but right now the Livna and
freshrpms repositories seems to be the most useful. The easiest way to get
started is to install the freshrpms-release packages:
# rpm -ihv
http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/4/i386/RPMS.lvn/livna-release-4-0.lvn.2.4.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ihv
http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/4/i386/RPMS.freshrpms/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm

You can browse the packages available there at
http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/4/i386/RPMS.lvn/ and
http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/4/i386/RPMS.freshrpms/.

bye !
