Heh. I love it when people ask questions about Windoze at a Linux forum.

.rm looks like RealMedia. You probably need RealPlayer.

Mplayer will also play real media files if you install the correct codecs.

Real Player for Linux
Read the directions.

Moved to general as this is not a "Linux - Software" or even Linux related question.
