What you want is xe(la)tex which is available in TeXLive.

Up release 8 fedora TeX packages were tetex which died a few years ago.
I have seen thet TeXLive will replace tetex in fedora 9.

fedora 9 alpha was published a few weeks ago, you could try if TeXLive
from this release can be installed under fedora 8. I will try it soon,
but I have to check a lot of things before, because I am too much
