Installing codecs for Kaffeine

I have a version of Linux redhat 6 installed and I cannot play my mp3's. The error message is roughly 'no plugins for this type of file'. I am not to familiar with the commands since I havent been able to use them very much. My friend is a Linux user and he insisted that I install it after my windows was practically ruined with a virus. Anyways, all help is greatly appreciated, but dont assume that I know what to do. In other words, pretend that I am stupid.

Several of the post install configure sites have very good instructions on exactly how to install what you need to get your Fedora install up to speed! Just Google fedora 6 post install. One question, why Fedora 6? 8 is the current release.

I am not sure about whether this works for RedHat but in many distros I have just copied the mplayer binary codecs to /usr/lib/codecs and kaffeine , xine and all media players started working great. ymmv

I used to use Mandriva ('07) and I just went surfing for lots of the "restricted" rpms. I found the libdvd ones and then I used Amarok for mp3s, just had to search for a little to get the right ones.
