Actually, it wont even let me install the dependencies. It tells me
that the program needs to be installed first but when I go to install
the program it tells me that it needs the dependencies. It is just
the the chicken and the egg. One will not let me install without the
other which leaves me with nothing.

It looks like I should just rpm -i and then manual remove the older
XFree86 files.
