I received an earlier email, and this solved this problem. 
However, when I run the yum -y install afterstep-apps, I receive this error;

---> Package ruby-libs.i386 0:1.8.4-1.fc4 set to be updated
--> Running transaction check
--> Processing Conflict: libwraster conflicts WindowMaker
--> Processing Dependency: for package: wmppp
--> Finished Dependency Resolution
Error: Missing Dependency: is needed by package wmppp
Error: libwraster conflicts with WindowMaker

I do not have Window maker installed, and I am not running a 64bit machine.
I've looked for a rpm for the, but found nothing.
