Good book to refer to: "Unix & Linux Answers! Certified Tech Support" by Charlie Russel and Sharon Crawford,

"If you aim the gun at your foot and pull the trigger, it's UNIX's job to 
ensure reliable delivery of the bullet to where you aimed the gun (in
this case, Mr. Foot)." -- Terry Lambert, FreeBSD-Hackers mailing list.

Better Yet, get the mondorescue.repo from the website, install it in
/etc/yum.repos.d and then run yum install mondo.

----------

In your browser, Firefox I hope, go to www.mondorescue.org.  Down the
page a little a click on ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org -> fedora -> 10.
Click on mondorescue.repo.  Save the text that is displayed as
mondorescue.repo.  Exit the browser and open a terminal window and cd to
where ever you saved the file.  Then "sudo cp mondorescue.repo
/etc/yum.repos.d".  Finally in the terminal window "sudo you install
mondo", it should pick up all of the required dependencies.


cd /etc/yum.repos.d/
touch mondorescue.repo
yum install mondo (failed due to dependency)
cd /download/
wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/fedora/7/afio-2.4.7-1.i386.rpm   from fedora7
wget ftp://ftp.mondorescue.org/fedora/7/buffer-1.19-1.i386.rpm  from fedora7
rpm -Uvh afio-2.4.7-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh buffer-1.19-1.i386.rpm
yum install mondo
