How about I get the *.conf from fedorafaq.org and overwrite mine with that one? I just downloaded it using wget.

I should note that the box that I am on now, is not the same as my Linux box. Plus, I don't have any remote management capabilities yet, so copy/paste isn't possible.

This time, using wget, I specified -O filename.abc and it worked, ls -la was displaying the file...

Yes, that's fine. Replace your current /etc/yum.conf with the one at fedorafaq.org and try running yum install vim-X11

I don't understand why you can't copy and poste the text via the console.
Just simply highlight it and click on "middle" button (or both buttons if you have two-button mouse).

With the new yum.conf, it's behaving differently. Downloading new headers...

Let me try to explain. I'm using XP now, posting here. My Linux box is seperate, sitting on the side. Two different screens. They are on the LAN however. I don't have a VNC like program yet that would enable me to remotely admin the Linux box from my XP box that I'm now. So, there's no way that the text on screen 1 is going to make it screen 2. Unless I'm seriously missing something.

BTW, thanks for the help so far!

I see. Well, then you need SSH client on your XP box.

What don't you install following SSH client on your XP box so you can ssh into your Linux Box?

ftp://ftp.ssh.com/pub/ssh/SSHSecureS...ient-3.2.9.exe

BTW, this is a "Non-Commercial Version" See following for deatil.
ftp://ftp.ssh.com/pub/ssh/LICENSE

Okay, with the new yum.conf, after having done yum install vim-X11, here is what I get:

"Damaged Header /var/cache/yum/base/headers/zsh-0-4.2.0-q.i386.hdr"
"Bad Header for pkg zsh.i386 trying to get headers for the nevral - exiting"

To be honest, I know about these concepts, but just don't know quite how to approach them using Linux. I use VNC from work to connect remotely to my home XP for instance. With that, I could do just that, copy and paste stuff from the console

I would use Putty as a windows SSH client.

It sounds like you need to clean up your yum cache.

Try running following:

# yum clean headers

Will definitelly try that. Right now, I'm connected via the provided SSH client. Any specifics to the type of connection I should have in order for it be more secure? Right now, using Password as authentication method.

Just press [Enter] key for a quick connection.
I normally use the default for "Authentication Method"

I just saw vim-X11 go by while fetching headers (even though I just cleaned them?)

Good. It supposed to download headers first then download the actual packages.
