Unhappy Installing A LAMP System With Fedora Core 6


I am in the process of installing a LAMP System with FC6 as per the 'Howto' at http://howtoforge.org/installing_a_l..._fedora_core_6. Everything was going well until I got to the section marked "6 Install Some Software" at http://howtoforge.org/installing_a_l...dora_core_6_p3.

Having entered the below command : -
yum install fetchmail wget bzip2 unzip zip nmap openssl lynx fileutils ncftp
I get the error message as shown below : -
ileutils ncftp
Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Could not retreive mirrorlist http://mirrors.fedoraproject.org/mirrorlist?repo=core-6&arch=i386 error was
[Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3, 'Temporary failure in name resolution').
Error; Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: core
I think the problem is that I have no internet connection.

My network is set up as follows : -

I connect to the Internet via Cable Modem. This Cable Modem feeds into a SmoothWall Box which has 3x NICs : -
  1. NIC 1 = Red (accepts connection from the Internet - IP Address assigned via DHCP from ISP).
  2. NIC 2 = Orange (Is the DMZ and feeds into the Server - Static IP Address
  3. NIC 3 = Green(Feeds a Wireless Router which in turn feeds the LAN IP Address IP Address - assigned via DHCP).

The addreses on the LAN are all assigned via a DHCP running on the Wireless Router and are on a different subnet.

I used to have a working Apache Web Server using this set up before. Can anyone tell me what went wrong ? All I did was remove the HDD and place a new one in the machine for this exercise.

I have also used the folloing settings for the server.
IP Address =
Subnet =
Gateway = (the IP address for the Orange NIC in the SmoothWall Box)
Broadcast =
Primary DNS =
Secondary DNS =
The DNS Servers are those belonging to my ISP.
The Server is connected to the Orange interface of the Smoothwall box via a 'Cross-over' cable.
