As I stated, the rpm isn't in the meta data and therefor can't be 
installed via yum:

# rpm -q rpmforge-release
rpmforge-release-0.3.5-1.el4.rf

# yum install perl-Proc-Daemon
Setting up Install Process
Setting up Repos
rpmforge                  100% |=========================| 1.1 kB

rpmforge  : ################################################## 6734/6734
No Match for argument: perl-Proc-Daemon
Nothing to do

Thanks again,
Bob
