Installing Xfce 4.2 on Fedora Core 3

I used the following steps to install Xfce 4.2 on my Fedora Core 3 system.

1. Install the dbh package from here.
rpm -Uvh http://www.us.xfce.org/archive/xfce-4.2.0/rpm/fdr/dbh-1.0.20-1fdr.i386.rpm

The dbh package included with Fedora Core does not contain the dbh-1.0.pc file that is required for Xfce installation.

2. Download the os-cillation Xfce installer.
http://www.os-cillation.de/download.php?file=xfce4-4.2.0-installer.bin

3. As the root user, run the os-cillation Xfce installer.
sh ./xfce4-4.2.0-installer.bin

When installing, I checked Extensive Optimizations and Use Alsa for the Xfce Mixer, and left Setup Display Managers checked.
