Mplayer

If you have Fedora Core 2, then install apt (Debian's apt-get tool ported to work with RPM's) and synaptic (a graphical front-end for apt). You can get them here:

apt

synaptic
http://tettnang.freshrpms.net/rpm.html?id=229

Once you have those installed, you can use synaptic to download and install Mplayer. It will take care of all the dependencies for you.

yum is another option. It lacks a graphical interface, but it has worked very nicely at handling dependencies for installing and reverse dependencies when removing software. I've been really impressed with it, but don't have enough experience with apt to make a meaningful comparison between the two. Just offering another option.

YUM and APT do essentially the same thing. The difference being the grahical front-end Synaptic for APT and the lack of one for YUM. Most people do not like working from the command line. I personally believe that in order to bring the Linux OS over to the mainstream average computer user, we have to be it easier to use. I personally have no problems working on the command line, but there's not a chance my mother ever would (or most other people I know for that matter).
