You need to extract the file with
tar xfz xine-lib-1-rc3a.tar.gz

this will create a directory called xine-lib-etc. Go into this directory and then do
./configure
then
make
and then
make install
(you need to be root for this last step).
Take a look at the README and INSTALL files though. Also, you will need to install either xine-ui or gxine to be able to use it.

Are you sure you want to compile everything? Most distributions have precompiled versions available.

If you do want to compile, then download the source code for gxine or xine-ui (go to www.xinehq.de to get them). The basic procedure is
1)uncompress the souce code file with
tar xfz <name of the file>
2) go into the directory where it got unpacked and run
./configure
3) compile and install with
make
make install

If this sounds too complicated, I seriously suggest looking for a precompiled package.

xine.de is under construction but that's the wrong place. The link is
xinehq.de

btw, did you do what I suggested in my first post above?

yes the www.xinehq.de is not loading anyway

yes the make command does not work but the "makefile" does work after that
if i use make install command does that mean the installation is completed

then how can i use the xine program ???

if make didn't work, then i doubt that you have xine installed. the output of make would be too long to to copy and post. try this instead.

1. use the cd command to where you downloaded the xine*.tar.gz
2. use the su command and enter the root password to change to a super user.
3. use this command to build rpms from the tarball:
rpm -ta xine-lib-1-rc3a.tar.gz
4. navigate using either your file manager or using the cd command to /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386
5. if the compilation was successful, you'll see a couple of xine rpms.
6. install those rpms by double clicking on the rpms if you navigated using your file manager or use this command if you navigated using the cd command:

rpm -Uvh xine*.rpm

you need to download the xine-ui tarball package also. download it to a different directory from where you downloaded the other xine tarball. follow the same steps above to build rpms for the xine-ui tarball. if you use the rpm command to install xine-ui, change the filename in the command to something like xine-ui*.rpm so you don't attempt to install the previous rpms in the /usr/src/... directory.

you'll then need to download a couple of dependancies and codecs for viewing dvds and other media types like avi, mov, etc. files.

when you've installed everything, you can start xine by using the command:
xine

Download anything libdvd from here
I download codecs from here
