screensavers missing in fc4?

I installed FC4 with the same options as I used for FC3. When I go into screensavers, no screensavers are listed. I've tried to yum install xscreensaver but it said nothing to do. Can somebody help this newbie get his screensavers back? BTW this was a clean install of FC4, I didn't update FC3. Thanks.

As root, do
#yum list | grep -i xscreensaver
Install all the packages that get printed onscreen except the devel package.
