what is output of commands (as root)...

rpm -qa|grep ruby
yum repolist

rpm -qa|grep ruby does not give anything just another prompt i.e

[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa|grep ruby
[root@localhost ~]#

and yum repolist gives the folowing

[root@localhost ~]# yum repolist
repo id repo name status
InstallMedia Fedora 8 enabled

what next please?

thanks craig

'rpm -qa|grep fedora-release' gives the following

fedora-release-notes-8.0.0-3
fedora-release-8-3

any suggestion please?

See below...you need to edit those files to 'enable' fedora and updates
