first RHEL6 is out of BETA
please install the current RHEL 6

activate your red hat account ( buy $$$ the license ) and run
Code:
yum update
and contact the paid for support - they can talk you through installing the software
http://www.redhat.com/support/


install the rpmforge repo ( and install the yum plugins "protect base" and "prioritys" and set them up)
see: the instructions for el6
http://wiki.centos.org/AdditionalRes...adf67142e9cb42

then look in the new reop
Code:
yum search mp3
-- or for Rhythmbox plugins--
yum search rhythmbox
you do know that the mp3 ,mpeg , and h264 ARE NOT free
and you need a license to use them (depending on where you live)
