I seem to have a catch22 here.
I've found the page at http://www.centos.org/modules/news/article.php?storyid8
that discusses installing yum-pluging-fastestmirror
"*How do I get this new system?*
This system is now live. If you update your system with the normal *yum update* command you will get the new *centos-yumconf* package."
The thing is, yum update fails with a string of [errno 4] (socket time outs) and [errno 12] (mirror url timeouts)
Can I get the file some other way?
Thanks for your response

I have 2 new servers built from 4.3 isos. I want to update them but
cannot do that because of update issues:
Up2date fails because of a several dependency issues.
yum update fails because of a problem with the au mirrors. yum can find
the mirrors but not the headers.
I would recommend that you install yum-plugin-fastestmirror and enable
plugins in /etc/yum.conf by adding:
Then you can rollover to 10 mirrors using the default configuration.
The up2date issue happened because of a bug with handling obsoletes ...
which is fixed in an update :P
also ... header issues normally mean you need to clean your yum
yum clean cache
