I just tried it out last night, and it worked great.  Reading a bit in the 
manual, though, you can put a list of mirror sites in, and they will be 
tried sequentially:




So, it might be best to leave the original mirror site in as a backup, or 
pick another server.

Another curiousity... The CDs I had on hand were for Fedora Core Test 3,
so I installed it anyway.  Edited yum.conf to point to the MUUG site, but
the core 1 base and updates.  "yum update", and I had myself a Core 1 box
at the end of it!  Not sure if I'm brave enough to try the same starting 
at RH 9. :)
