This is a problem.  If you cannot find it, there is something wrong with
your fedora repo configuration.  In fact, it hasn't been called "base"
for a while now.  It should be called "fedora".

When I do updates, yum finds the following:

yes, I have a few "extra" repositories configured.  But note the
"names".  Why are yours different?

system-config-printer-0.7.74.4-3.fc8 exists on the original installation
media.  I can find it just by going to the repositories with my web browser.

Here is a URL to it (if you can't find it on your local media):

http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/releases/8/Everything/i386/os/Packages/system-config-printer-0.7.74.4-3.fc8.i386.rpm

Download it using your favorite WWW browser or wget.
(adjust the i386 part to match your architecture requirements if necessary)

install it using rpm.  In fact, I think you can give the URL directly to
rpm and it will download it and install it for you (assuming it needs no
other dependencies).
