      Just download the XFree 4.3.0 source rpm (......src.rpm) and rebuild it on
      your system, provided you have the kernel source package installed (should be
      on your cd), then "rpmbuild --rebuild ......src.rpm" as root, see where the
      new rpm is placed, generally /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386, and install it as you
      would normally, i.e. rpm -Uvh ........i386.rpm.

      Regards, John.
