Question installing gxine / watching movies / sos

im going crazy here,
i tried downloading what i think is gxine rpm, it did the whole calculating dependencies thing and than exited without saying didly squat. ok cool, i downloaded the source, but when i run ./configure it tell me to go $#(% myself,
well actually : "error: you need to install libxaw header files (-dev package)"
but when i looked for libxaw (google) i found that it's in xfree, but i have xfree
im using redhat 9 on an athlon and im basically just trying to watch movies in linux, why does it have to be so difficult ?!?

TnX Again for the help.
