yum headers

I setup yum according to the document at http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/updates/ . However, when i run yum with yum check-update because this is my first time using it, it says:

Gathering information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 2 - i386 - Base
Error - /var/cache/yum/base/header.info cannot be found
Please ask your sysadmin to update the headers on this system.

When i browse to that folder, its empty. Is there anything im missing?

Thanks in advance.

Download the yum.conf file from here: http://www.fedorafaq.org/samples/yum.conf . This is the most highly recognized version.

Also, what kernel are you running. I've heard that 2.6.8 has some bugs with yum, but I don't know much about it.
