Sorry, typo on my part. Should be  fedora-release-10-1.noarch.rpm.

Not a surprise. The url was also incorrect or not working for Fedora
9.  Go with the default, i.e. mirrorslist, or visit
http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/publiclist, select a mirror (hope
it's a fast one) close to your location, and enter its url in place of
the fedora server.

Since you have fedora-release-10-1 installed try upgrading yum.

Go read up on installation methods here:
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/install-guide/f10/en_US/ch-other-install-methods.html

See if the section on "Installation from a hard drive" might work for you.
