maybe you don't know versions, but anyway you can:

rpm -qa|egrep metro

and then

rpm -e metro

and whatever you find. You needn't use the version numbers.

But you may break your X server... after deleting metro, cd to
/usr/X11R6/bin , there you should find a symbolic link called X pointing to your X server (which maybe the deleted metro server).

In this directory also you'll [probably] find some XF86_* files, which are the actual X server binaries. If the link is gone or pointing to the old metro, just "ln -s XF86_VGA X" which would give you back a 16 color [almost] universal Xserver. There are some utilities that may help you, like Xconfigurator, XF86Setup or xf86config.

Good Luck,
