problem in connecting yum repository

[root@raymond raymond]# yum install lib
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Red Hat Linux 4ES - i386 - Base
retrygrab() failed for:
  Executing failover method
failover: out of servers to try
Error getting file http://mirror.dulug.duke.edu/pub/yum-repository/redhat/4ES/i386/headers/header.info
[Errno 4] IOError: HTTP Error 404: Not Found

pls post your yum.conf and yum.repos.d/*

also do you have a proxy for connecting to internet or is it direct
The problem is that http://mirror.dulug.duke.edu/pub/yum-repository/redhat/4ES does not exist (or at the very least, is not public, unlike other things on that server).
You need to take that out of yum (as it doesn't exist) and you won't get the error.
