I've been trying to edit that and have it thoroughly fubared.

If I can't restore what was there, and amanda doesn't try to track that 
lappy, what is the correct contents for the "mirrorlist=" line in 
fedora-core.repo?

Where can I download a replacement for the contents of /etc/yum.repos.d?  
I've had google searching for it, but all it can seem to find is the livna 
setup instructions.  They seem to be fine.
