Cool that'll work Chuck, I'm ignoring the gpgcheck for now. If/when I 
start sharing my yum.conf with others I'd like to point it to
some official XFce rpm repository & do the gpgcheck's though (just 
dottin my i's & crossing my T's). Would the 'rawhide' packages be 
compatible with Fedora & can they be placed in the testing/extras tree 
or one of the Major RPM* repositories? -Excuse my ignorance, never 
messed with rawhide much... Now I'm looking into migrating some legacy 
systems using fedoralegacy.org

Ref: There is work being done to support or update RH Linux
legacy distros from 7.2-9.0 to fedora...

Major *RPM* repositories

Yup, exactly.
Things are nearly into place over at fedoralegacy.org. I'll probably be
mirroring the /pub/fedoralegacy tree on ftp.freshrpms.net and replace the
"updates" apt/yum modules for EOLed distributions with the Fedora Legacy
ones which contain all the existing official Red Hat errata until the EOL,
as well as the new updates produced by the Fedora Legacy project.
