Is there any alive repository for my Fedora Core 3 Linux?

(I want to use the yum command but one error comes and tells that base url is not valid)

Any help to find any alive repository is very much appreciated :)

Fedora 3 is long gone, this is just of historic interest. There might be working repositories at the places @YaseiNoUmi cites, but when I groped around there looking for an old Red Hat, what I found had pieces missing. – vonbrand Jan 24 '13 at 23:15
Be aware that Fedora Core 3 has known serious security flaws even with all updates applied. Any local user will be able to get root access easily. Make sure your system is well isolated. When you get a hands, I suggest migrating to CentOS or RHEL, which does offer this kind of decade-long security update lifetime. – mattdm Aug 15 '13 at 11:48

Seems like it moved to a new location:
