Most distros now support NTFS by default.

Using your package manager, try searching for "ntfs"

but playing a movie on a RHEL server ??
will be "fun" to say the least
none of the needed software is in the RHN repo( or not much)

install the "yum-priaorites" plugin
and install rpmforge
AND CONFIGURE THE REPO AND PLUGIN !!!!!
the rpmforge repo can be incompatible with RHN !!!!!!!
- BE WARNED !!!! --

then you can try to install the video players

"smplayer" and / or VLC

but BE WARNED !!!!!

if you are not VERY careful you can royally FUBAR a RHEL install do ing this

RHEL was never designed to watch movies on

Also seeing as this IS RHEL
you DID buy the required support contract
use it
the first stop with a RHEL question should be the RED HAT Knowledge-base
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/search
you will have to log in to red hat first

mp3 support is in third party repos

do to patent and royality issues
red hat is not going to ship it
nor have the code in the RHN repos

you might want to use the redhat knowlage base
https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/search
( you will have to log in the the site to use it )

or have a look at the Cent wiki
http://wiki.centos.org/

or
port the fedora instructions for use on RHEL
http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f17.html

red hat assumes that you ARE an experienced red hat system admin.
and already know your way around

but see the WARNING in the above post

the rpmforge reopo can incompatible with rhn upstream

getting the "gstreamer" files installed is known to possibly cause issues do to dependency incompatibility with RHN

it is VERY easy to FUBAR the red hat install
if you are not VERY careful you might need to reinstall

this is a VERY normal problem with using a SERVER class operating system
on a home desktop
or even worse on a laptop

RHEL is designed for the headless server
no gui
no mp3 listening
no video/movie watching
no game playing

though the above "can" be done ... it might not be easy to do.
