emm. not sure I understand you. You already installed winamp [xmms is better - http://www.xmms.org/ ].
so you you just run it - try a command like:
winamp
in the console. If that did not work try:
gwinamp
If that did not work look at the README and INSTALL files if there are any.

Check the documentation that came with it, usually the name of the program=command to use...btw winamp is just xmms for windows, so why not use xmms? www.xmms.org

click the red fedora hat then go to system tools and click terminal. Or click an empty space on desktop, and click new terminal. Btw, i suggest making a shortcut to the terminal, because I'm sure you'll use it quite a bit.

Great!!!

Deleting - prolly not a great idea at this point - wait until you know more about what you are doing before you start deleting things. If it is installed on there is should not cause any problems anyhow - unless of course if you are short on hard drive space?

btw - did you install xmms yourself or did you use the native OS version?

~ the Native Os version has copyright Issues for legal reason so if you run into any issues playing mp3's or anything then just get the xmms version from their site.
