Hi,

This may or may not be helpful, but I'll put this out there anyway just
in case :-)

In the CentOS 6 version of EPEL repository the group is
called "Xfce" (Case Sensitive)

so:

yum groupinstall "Xfce"

Should do the trick. 

If that doesn't work try "yum grouplist" and find a group related to
XFCE. :-).

Hope this helps.
