That seems to have worked much better. Just two error messages:-
http://www.mirrorservice.org/sites/download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/development/i386/wine-docs-0.9.27-1.fc7.noarch.rpm: [Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>
Trying other mirror.
Error: failure: wine-docs-0.9.27-1.fc7.noarch.rpm from
extras-development: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.
[root at localhost led]#
I'm guessing these are caused by these sites being down, hopefully
temporarily, so I will leave it for now and have another go later on
today when I get up. Thanks for your help
