You can disable SELinux or put it in permissive mode.

Open a terminal and as root give "rpm -Uhv http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/...ide.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-rawhide.noarch.rpm" without quotes
If you want mp3 in temrinal give as root "yum install gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly"
and to play mp3 in amarok if you have kde or amarok give this "yum install libtunepimp-extras-nonfree
yum install xine-lib-extras-nonfree" without quotes!!

Why fedora 10 and not 13 the current release?

Take a look at http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f13.html

If you do not have the net connection, you will need to download all the dependencies and install them one by one. And every package can have their own respective dependencies. It could have a chain of dependencies as well. That is why yum makes it easy.

I'm not sure you'll have access to the required packages because you using Fedora 10, which is no longer supported. Is there a reason you're using such an old version? If not, I'd install Fedora 13 and then refer to this to set up the rpmfusion repos. Then you should be able to install the necessary packages.

You should definately use a newer version of Fedora, Fedora has reached end of life and is no longer supported. Try 12 or 13 instead.

Lots of Fedora users remove PulseAudio as well, as this presents problems in every Fedora release where it is present, and adds very little.

Try

Code:
su -c "yum erase pulseaudio"
after installling your new system if you still have problems, then reboot.

Disable SELinux temporarily with

Code:
setenforce 0
