Hi doralsoral!!!

Firstly, I would recommend you installing Xine directly from your Redhat CD's. Even so, the best Media Player for Linux is mplayer. You can get it from:

If you know what apt-get is/does, you can easily install it with this command at any terminal:

apt-get install mplayer

if you don't know what it is/does, take a look here:

Use this forum search button for similar questions regarding mplayer or apt-get/synaptic. I'd to say, it's the best tool ever IMHO .

Good luck!
