The latest version of fedora is 12. Why are you starting your linux experience with 9? You might have an easier time of it with the latest version. Versions of fedora are only supported for a limited time.
RPM is the system of managing the software packages that is used by fedora and RedHat(RHEL), as well as other linux distributions.
If you can, you need to install the fedora 9 repositories to download media players and their codecs in order to play restricted media.
