    hello
    now we have a seperate open source forum it is sad to see this post here. Please post such queries in the open source form and thus increasing the popularity of the forum.
    as regarding your Q try installing mplayer it is same as windows media player for exact instructions please tell us the linux distro you are using
    ok ok i saw that you use FC 2 i too use it so the best way is to use yum
    1. go on the net and down load a file called yum.conf (This you will get from a google search)
    2. Next all you have to do is give a command
    yum install mplayer

    this will get mplayer all its dependency and the frontend and install it on your system
    The other way is to self download rpm od mplayer gui and any other dependency and then do a rpm -ivh *.rpm
