Thanks for the swift reply Duncan, I tried the link you mentioned in
yum.conf and received the following message :-

Error getting file
[Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

Is there a site I should be looking at to get the information on =
with yum rather than
http://www.gotmono.net/documentation/mono-fedora-howto.html ?

Is there a better way of installing/maintaining mono on a fedora box =
than yum? The mono site provides virtually no information on installing =
yum, is this intentional to push users towards alternative methods or is =
simply an oversight?=20

Is FC2 going to be supported by mono, or will users wishing to avoid
installing from source (the potential target machines are not set up to
allow compilation from source) going to be forced to migrate to FC3?=20

Many thanks in advance, and sorry for all the newbie questions,
