This is what I did to install :

1. Boot with Fedora Rescue CD in.
2. Change setting in /etc/inittab to boot without X11.
3. Reboot without Fedora Rescue CD.
4. Fedora starts without X11.
5. Log in as root.
5. Invoke 'yum groupinstall XFCE' to install XFCE.
6. Repeat step 1 & 2, only this time set to boot with X11.
6. Reboot.
