Default Problem with running 'yum update' on my CentOS VPS

I have a VPS with CentOS 5.2, however, I have this error when running 'yum update' through Putty:

Loading "fastestmirror" plugin
Determining fastest mirrors
* utterramblings: www.jasonlitka.com
Could not retrieve mirrorlist http://mirrorlist.centos.org/?releas...h=i386&repo=os error was
[Errno 12] Timeout: <urlopen error timed out>
Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base
Below is the content of my /etc/yum.conf


# Note: yum-RHN-plugin doesn't honor this.

# Default.
# installonly_limit = 3

# PUT YOUR REPOS HERE OR IN separate files named file.repo
# in /etc/yum.repos.d
Does anyone happen to know what might be wrong? thanks
