Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 3 - Base
Server: Fedora Legacy utilities for Fedora Core 3
Server: Fedora Core 3 updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Getting groups from servers
No groups provided or accessible on any server.
Exiting.

the yum grouplist/groupupdate/groupinstall (etc.) commands will only
work if there is a yumgroups.xml file setup in the repository you are using.
If your /etc/yum.conf is only pointing to the FL base/updates directories,
then you will not see any groups because there are none configured there.

I think you have to refresh or update your YUM repositories ( list of servers and sources)
