Hi, welcome to LQ!

May I suggest that, instead of wasting your time and band-width on an
unsupported version (8. and 9. are long dead), you go and get FC 11?

There have been no patches for your version for almost a year.

Fedora does not ship with commercial, patented and proprietary software by default. You have to add an external repository with all those "dirty" packages then install them. But as said earlier, Fedora Core 8 is dead, you should update, it is free.
