You seem to still have the yum.conf for FC2 - there are several different ways to use yum in FC3 - here's a yum.conf that's part of the Unofficial FC3 FAQ http://www.fedorafaq.org/samples/yum.conf
You may also want to consider the other options here: http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthr...ht=yum.repos.d

With fc 3 you have to create your repos yum for updates and installation of other software. More here.
