I could send you the path I used, but I'm afraid that won't do you any
good. I hauled in the .95 ISOs and used them to build my own local
repository. http://www.charlescurley.com/yum.html.

However, a quick look through the server at Duke suggests that the
following should work:
http://mirror.dulug.duke.edu/pub/yum-repository/redhat/0.95/$basearch/
(where $basearch had better be i386), a straightforward edit of the
out of the box yum.conf. Try that and let us know if you get a
reasonable output to "yum check-update". For example, the kernel
should be 2.4.22-1.2088.nptl.
