	Thanks. It worked very well. It feels as though there is less control than 
there was with FC2 and compiling it myself. I did a couple of things out of 
sequence but they still work.

Basic steps:
-Get the codecs and put them in the appropriate directory (follow Xine 
-Add the dries repository to the list in the appropriate directory 
(instructions also on the same site)
-Update what's available in yum
-Follow the instructions previously quoted for just MPlayer or the ones on the 
site to get the fonts, skins, and GUI as well.

	From there I was up and running.
