Thanks Johnny.

This is what I'm getting now:

[root at karsites ~]# yum groupinfo XFCE
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, priorities
Setting up Group Process
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
  * base: mirror.for.me.uk
  * epel: mirrors.ukfast.co.uk
  * extras: mirror.for.me.uk
  * rpmforge: nl.mirror.eurid.eu
  * updates: mirror.for.me.uk
Warning: Group XFCE does not exist.

I was installing xfce4 with:

yum -y groupinstall "XFCE"

Has the name been changed?
