Call up a session of yumex as root, and have yum remove it?  ISTR there 
were 3 items to remove.  But before it removed beagle-gui, I tried to get 
it to run and it, if it existed at all, wasn't in the $PATH, so I removed 
them.

Let us know please when this thing is ready for prime time, and what 
exactly its supposed to do for us when it runs.
