As far as I understand your problem, nodoka-metacity-theme is Fedora 8
default theme for metacity, so it needs metacity to be installed, but if
you do not want to use metacity it should be save to remove. It will
remove fedora-gnome-theme as well, but this dependency also OK. When you
do "yum remove metacity" which package appears in the list of packages
to remove that you don't want to remove?
