Dependencies install questions XFree86

[keith@LinuxBox keith]$ rpm -i tightvnc-server-1.2.9-1.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
XFree86 is needed by tightvnc-server-1.2.9-1
[keith@LinuxBox keith]$

My question is: is XFree86 a program that will install on gnome or is a replacement for gnome or is avlb in kde or WHAT!

Any clarity on relationship of these will be appreciated. lercture me I learn quick.

X is both a server and a client.
So it's basically independent.
GNOME, KDE, XFCE, ... are all window makers that help you using X.

The reason for your error is easy.
FC2 uses and not xfree86.
