Installing Xfce with Yum

This seems rather simple (and probably is) but I want to install Xfce with Yum but it cant seem to find it
[root@localhost root]# yum install xfce
Gathering header information file(s) from server(s)
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Base
Server: Fedora Core 1 - i386 - Released Updates
Finding updated packages
Downloading needed headers
Cannot find a package matching xfce
No actions to take
I am guessing I need to add something to the yum.conf file to look for more package names but I have no idea as to what. I have googled and searched the board but havent come upon any luck.

Another question (while I am at it): how do I find the name of the package I want to install with yum? is there a list somewhere? eg: i type in yum update apache and it cant find it either.

Thanks for the help.

Apache in Fedora (Red Hat, too) is "httpd"

Okay I found out what I was doing wrong. Yes Lupin, that repository had it and so I added it and tried 'yum install xfce' and got the same thing so I decided to manually search the headers file and saw it listed as xfce4 so I tried that and it worked. And now, later, I have found this page which could have easily told me to do a search for it such as 'yum search xfce' and I would have known to xfce4. Thx for the suggestions guys.
