    Hi anitha2324,

    Fedora doesn't support NTFS out of box. install kmod-ntfs package to enable NTFS read access.
    Code:
    yum -y install kmod-ntfs
    check this Tutorial to enable NTFS write access in Fedora.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    I found this post related with your problem:
    Yum error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: - LinuxQuestions.org

    It may be probably a network problem, are you able to download and browse files normaly from that machine ?

    Look into /etc/yum.repos.d/ and see that the baseurl's are not commented, uncomment them.

    Bye,

    your machine must be connected to internet. Yum or Add/Remove wont work without that. in case you dont have internet connection, copy kmod-ntfs rpm from Installation DVD and install it manually using rpm command.
