On Google, search for this : " fc4 xmms-mp3 rpm " (without the quotes).
Then download the rpm file found. It should be named like
xmms-mp22.214.171.124.i386.rpm or something similar.
Now, open a terminal and go to the folder where the file is. For example, in KDE, open the folder in Konqueror and right click on any open space. From the pop-up menu, select Actions > Open Ternimal Here
. Type su, and when prompted for your root password, type that too. Now, type rpm -ivh <filename.rpm>
where filename.rpm is the file we downloaded. You will now be able to play mp3's. Enjoy!
To play movies, you'll need xine, xine-lib and win32codecs. You may also want totem-xine. Search for these on Google and download their rpm files. RPM's are a kind of setup
files for linux.
You can start a program by just entering it's name in a run box. In GNOME or KDE, just hit ALT+F2

Most of the programs you'll ever need are included in Fedora. But depending on what it is that you want to do with your computer, there are lots of excellent programs for linux out there, just so you know. Also, Fedora does not include commercial multimedia codecs because of licensing issues. Apart from that, it lacks nothing.
You might also want to disable some services to speed up your system. These may include services such as sshd, sendmail, etc. You'll find the tool here:
Gnome Menu > System Settings > Server Settings > Services
Anything else you may want to know, you know where to find us
