thanks very much for your response. I followed your advice and now Beagle and Best seem to be working. I am using kernel 2.6.13-1.1532_FC4.

I confess that I had already read your webpage, but the real problem was that I am new to yum and didn't realize it was downloading the mono package from somewhere unexpected. In case there is someone else like myself who is new to yum, I did the following:
edited all of the /etc/yum.repos.d/*.repo files (for some people, maybe /etc/yum.conf), setting
for ALL entries, except for the following, which were changed to enabled=1

Erased all of my existing, incompatible packages (from previous failed attempts!)
  ~> yum erase tomboy gecko-sharp dbus-sharp galago-sharp gsf-sharp \
gtk-sharp gmime-sharp gst-sharp beagle mono-base mono

3. Install beagle and others (this installed/updated 32 packages)
  ~> yum install beagle galago-sharp gtk-sharp2 gecko-sharp2

4. At this point, beagled still did not work, even though I was denying the evolution backend as recommended, via the command:
  ~> beagled  --deny-backend EvolutionDataServer
So I installed evolution-sharp:
  ~> yum install evolution-sharp
This installed/updated 52 packages!

After this it worked, more or less.  The end product is unbelievably good.

Thanks again,
