do a whereis for xmms

/home/manasb> whereis xmms
xmms: /usr/X11R6/bin/xmms /usr/bin/X11/xmms /usr/X11/bin/xmms /usr/share/xmms /usr/X11/man/man1/xmms.1.gz

The skins should be in /usr/share/xmms/Skins or /usr/local/share/xmms/Skins.

That was very helpful man
also had a look on the man pages cos there was no Sknins folder in the share/xmms folder so i created it myself and put my skins in there and they work.

From man xmms

XMMS supports WinAmp style skins. Skins may be stored in either archived (.zip, .wsz, .tgz, .tar.gz, or .tar.bz2) or unarchived format. XMMS looks for skinfiles in ${prefix}/share/xmms/Skins, ~/.xmms/Skins, and locations specified by the SKINSDIR variable.
So you can either drop them in a suitable subdirectory in your home, or figure out the prefix used to install it. Probably /usr, possibly /usr/local

The "rpm" command can give you a listing of all the files installed by a package, I can't remember the syntax, its been over a year since I last used rpm.
