Thank you, Kevin. I wasn't aware of the groupinstall command. It worked like a 
champ. I started with a Live (Gnome) CD install, did the groupinstall, then 
loaded switchdesk and switchdesk-gui, and was up and running within a 
half-hour.

A hint to anyone installing xfce: You will get an ugly message if you try to 
access the Window Manager or Window Manager Tweaks apps, "These settings 
cannot work with your current window manager (imsetting -xim)". The fix is to 
do yum remove imsettings -- it will take a bunch of other files with it. (Not 
my idea -- it's from the Fedora Project wiki as linked to from the Release 
Notes.)
