 My most humble apologies! I didn't read the FAQ completely, and hence didn't 
use the yum.conf shown. Hence it didn't work for me.

 Now my question--why should I have to change the yum configuration as 
distributed with FC3 just to get FC3 to actually work, and what are the 
implications, compatibility & security-wise? Personally, I feel much more 
comfortable installing 'non-standard' RPMs on a case-by-case basis, directly 
using rpm -ivh etc.
