Description of problem:
Upgraded to fc3t2 from fc2. Some time ago I had modified my fc2
yum.conf to point to some mirrors. I used the yum.conf from fedorafaq.

After install finished and I booted into the os the rhn applet showed
many updates.  I tried to use up2date but it's incredibly slow.
Decided to revert to yum.

Yum gave several 404 errors.  I noticed that in the /etc folder there
was a yum.conf.rpmnew file, so I replaced my modified yum.conf file
with the rpmnew version and everything worked perfectly.

Maybe this isn't a bug, or maybe it is but it won't be an issue when
things go live and mirrors get copies of the fc3 final.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. modify the yum.conf file on a working fc2 system using the yum.conf
file from fedorafaq (http://www.fedorafaq.org/samples/yum.conf)
2. upgrade to fc2t2
3. try to do a yum --update command. 

Actual Results:  404 errors

Expected Results:  Should have had an updated system

Well, you don't want to change a modified yum.conf in general, so I
believe this is behaving more or less as expected.
