Over-riding with no-deps won't help - there's a reason the install needs them

Start by posting the result of

yum repolist

and also some more detail about the failed dependencies (preferably the error messages)

FC6 os beyond EOL(End Of Life). Save yourself a lot of headaches and run a supported version. Fedora 8 is the current version.
