Uninstalling Packages Rpm!

How can I go about removing all packages from my system that deal with XFree86? For examples I am trying the following:
rpm -qa | grep XFree

all packages listed here...

Is there an easier way to remove all 10 someodd packages in one shot?
I had tried rpm -qae --nodeps | grep XFree but this didn't work as i'd hoped. Any help would be great, THANX!

Install a package manager like apt and synaptic. There are versions for Fedora and Redhat Linux at and at freshrpms.
