XFCE installation problem


I'm trying to install xfce on my fedora 4 system.I want to install xfce via the graphical installation wizard.I'm trying to extract it I get an error:
[root@e89209 Desktop]# ./xfce4-
Verifying file integrity... OK.
Extracting the installer... OK.
Checking for usable C compiler... gcc
Checking for usable C++ compiler... g++
Checking for GNU make... gmake
Checking for package config tool... pkg-config
Checking for GLib (GModule) >= 2.2.0... not found, see /root/.xfce4.installer-log for details
Cleaning up... OK.
It says that I need Glib.I googled for glib and found this site:
I downloaded glib-2.6.6.tar.bz2,but I don't have any idea how to install it...Could anyone please help me?

kind regards

I'm reading the install instructions included in the file.I'm very sorry for this stupid topic.But please don't close it,I might get more problems.

Damn,I hate dependencies,I've installed like 3 dependencies and it still asks for some more.Is there a apt/yum repo that includes xfce?I can't handle all thos dependencies anymore.Please help.

Have you tried just doing "yum install xfce"?

$yum list | grep -i xfce
xfce is definitely in the xfce repos.
