Default Error in skype installation

I followed the instructions here: http://www.howtoforge.com/installati...ra8-desktop-p9, but I keep on getting this message in 'yum install skype'.

Config Error: File contains parsing errors: file://///etc/yum.repos.d/skype.repo
[line 2]: name=Skype Repository
[line 3]: baseurl=http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/fedora/updates/i586/
[line 4]: gpgkey=http://www.skype.com/products/skype/linux/rpm-public-key.asc
[line 5]: gpgcheck=1
[line 6]: enabled=1

I'm using Fedora 8.

What could be the problem?

This is the content (same as the one in http://www.howtoforge.com/installati...8-desktop-p9):

[skype]
name=Skype Repository
baseurl=http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/fedora/updates/i586/
gpgkey=http://www.skype.com/products/skype/linux/rpm-public-key.asc
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1

Hi,

is there an empty line at the top? If yes remove it. The working configuration on my system:

[olli@server1 ~]$ cat /etc/yum.repos.d/skype.repo
[skype]
name=Skype Repository
baseurl=http://download.skype.com/linux/repos/fedora/updates/i586/
gpgkey=http://www.skype.com/products/skype/linux/rpm-public-key.asc
gpgcheck=1
enabled=1

Best regards,

Olli
