Minimalistic instalation with Xfce


I would need your advice how to do a minimalistic instalation of Fedora with Xfce from CLI.

I downloaded minimum install iso (about 200MB) and started to install. During the instalation I checked "minimal", thats all.

Now I want to install Xorg and Xfce and GDM. But I want to install just necessary packages... without networkmanager and so on. For example for Xfce is it:

yum group install xfce --setopt=group_package_types=mandatory

But after
yum group install "x window system"
yum group install xfce --setopt=group_package_types=mandatory

there is just black screen.
