you'll need to make them .deb format or find the .deb files somewhere cuz mepis uses the debian package system so rpm wont work. ya gonna need alien for converting an rpm package to a deb package. info about alien is here --> http://kitenet.net/~joey/code/alien.html

You can get the w32codecs in Mepis much easier than that. Either add the appropriate repo in Synaptic, or try Automatix
