By default it seems that xscreensaver-extras and
xscreensaver-gl-extras packages are not installed. This caused my
screensaver list to be unpopulated. I promptly installed both packages
via yum and reset my screensaver to what it was in FC3. I am back to
using the StarWars screensaver with the Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle scrolling by. :)
