Is it possible that your name server couldn't resolve ftp.redhat.com?  This
doesn't look like an issue with the repository, but rather an issue with
resolution of the web site.  The files appear to be there and the URL looks
proper from here.  As a temporary workaround, you can replace ftp.redhat.com
with the address 209.132.176.30 in /etc/yum.repos.d/mrg-beta.repo

# host ftp.redhat.com
ftp.redhat.com has address 209.132.176.30
Comment 2 Bill Maruyama 2008-06-18 20:44:34 EDT
I can run #nslookup ftp.redhat.com, which returns 209.132.176.38.

I updated the /etc/yum.repos.d/mrg-beta.repo 
in vi ":1,$s/ftp.readhat.com/209.132.176.38/g" 
a got a similiar error message

http://209.132.176.38/pub/redhat/linux/beta/MRG/RHEL-
5/i386/repodata/repomd.xml: [Error 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-2, 'Name or 
service not known') > Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for respository: mrg-beta


If I put "http://ftp.redhat.com/pub/redhat/linux/beta/MRG/RHEL-
5/i386/repodata/repomd.xml" in my browser I get the repomd.xml page...

Comment 3 Bryan Che 2008-06-18 22:13:38 EDT
We are in the process of closing the beta and taking down the beta repository.
Comment 4 Bill Maruyama 2008-06-19 18:26:30 EDT
I had set the proxy for the Software Updater and the Firefox browser, but did 
not set the proxy for yum.
I added the proxy to the /etc/yum.conf file and things are working.
