OK, I thought I had tried that, but apparently I had not. Looks good from here now!
Thanks very much.

Any of the mirrors listed on the whiteboxlinux.org website are full
mirrors and have the YUM data there. if you edit
the /etc/sysconfig/rhn/sources file you you can disable the yum-mirror
lines and then set the main 3 yum lines to point to your favorite mirror
(ie.. FAST mirror). The format is pretty self explanatory as the
sources file is very well documented.
