BackupPC install probelm on fc5

I am trying to install BackupPC via:
yum install BackupPC
(apparently BackupPC-2.1.2-6.fc5.noar) no problems/error during that phase,

but I can not find as part of the installed files.
the file is not part of the package files-list
What am I doing wrong?

hence, I downloaded the file (from,
and tried to run it, but I got:
"BackupPC cannot find the package BackupPC::Lib, which is
included in the
BackupPC distribution. This probably means you did not cd
to the
unpacked BackupPC distribution before running, eg:

cd BackupPC-__VERSION__

Please try again."

what am I doing wrong?
how can I install & config. it ?
is there any detailed installation procedure for Fedora (fc5)
out there ?
sites too lean :
- fedoranews dot org/blog/?p=603
- www dot enterprisenetworkingplanet dot com/netos/article.php/3609831 (part 1-3)
- sourceforge dot net/mailarchive/forum.php?forum_id=503
(read-only for unknown reason, although I login)
- fedoranews dot org/blog/?p=603

my machine: fc5 onto amd64 (Foxconn 6100M2MA)

many thanks in advance
