Am I missing something here?

Doesn't this `sed' script do precisely what Kam Lao suggested---namely
to comment out the mirrorlist URL and uncomment the baseurl?  If yes,
then (as I wrote to Kam) I did that already (by hand) before I wrote
to the list; didn't help.

I can't imagine this being a network problem on my machine, router, or
provider as I can get to the darn repomd.xml file (and look inside
it!) via Firefox.

Other suggestions?
