Welcome to the CentOS fora. Please see the recommended reading for new users linked in my signature.

Change your yum repos to point to http://vault.centos.org/4.9/ and plan your migration to a supported version.

Thank you. I was able to make this work by commenting out mirrorlist directives and adding baseurl=http://vault.centos.org/4.9/os/$basearch in /etc/yum.repos.d/CentOS-Base.repo for enabled sections.
