Well, only answer can be because Fedora's primary servers
for Base, Updates and Stable are missing all of the 'xfce4-*' extra
modules, and I never use the unstable yum repos to update or install
from. Should I be pulling from a mirror instead of the CD's provided or
Fedora's own primary servers? Maybe you can recommend one that has these
missing modules packaged for FC 2?
