Since you have RHEL5 installed follow the advice here: http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/FAQ.php#B

When ready type something like: yum install mplayer.i386 mplayerplug-in.i386

If the browser is 64-bit then you will also need the nspluginwrapper rpm packages from here;

Thanks I will look at this and see of the many applications I have under Fedora 6 32-bit are available for RHEL 5 64 -bit.

I went with the 64-bit. After thinking about it I could find a single reason considering the hardware I have, started to feel like a huge waste to not go 64-bit.

Honestly I expected 64-bit version of RHEL to be further along then any of the other distros for a workstation OS.

Thanks
