Screen Saver


I am running a Fedora 8 machine x86_64 architecture and I would like more of a screensaver variety.

I downloaded and installed a screen saver extra:

xscreensaver-base-5.05-1.fc8
xscreensaver-extras-5.05-1.fc8

But how do I access these extras? Even after a download, install and reboot, I do not see anything extra in System -> Preferenes -> ScreenSaver

I suppose they ought to pop up in the list of available screen savers which is in the XScreenSaver configuration utility. If not, check out what files the packages include and do a web search to find out what they should do..
