Unofficial Dell Linux yum repository broken

Sorry, I was going through and removing old compat crud because we
dropped FC3 & FC4. I stopped producing the old, back-compat yum metadata
because I thought all the distros I now support use the new format.
Turns out that RHEL3 still uses the old yum-arch style metadata.

I will add this back in shortly. 

Thanks again.

Thanks, we were mucking with the repository again late last week getting
some fancy autobuilding work for libsmbios and firmware-tools to happen.
Looks like that was a casualty...  Thanks for the report.
