Yum Errors

when i tried doing: yum check-update in the terminal, i get an error saying, "caching enabled and local cache: //var/cache/yum/fedora/primary.sqlite.bz 2 does not match checksum"

and when i try to do a localinstall from the desktop, it told me that i need a root install. i do not know how to do a root install. can someone tell me how to do that?

In a Terminal window type:

thanks but, i also read somewhere that you can use yum to install ndiswrapper, but how do you do that... i tried following the instructions for installing the ndiswrapper but, it didn't work, it said i needed some other stuff to compile it.
