When I tried to update all of my packages this is what I got? What is going on?
[root@localhost ~]# yum -y update
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Setting up Update Process
Setting up repositories
dries [1/6]
http://ftp.belnet.be/packages/dries.ulyssis.org/fedora/linux/5/i386/dries/RPMS/r epodata/repomd.xml: [Errno 14] HTTP Error 404: Date: Mon, 20 Nov 2006 12:47:13 G MT

I don't even know what any of this means? A few minutes ago everything was fine and now this?

Can anyone help me - thanks!
