    I've never understood why instructors ask their students to use really old versions of distributions unless it is so the student will run into problems and issues that then have to be figured out. Just a thought, but perhaps your instructor can provide some information that will lead you to a media player that can be installed and work under Fedora 7.

    Just type mplayer into any of the search engines and it should pull up the mplayer website link so that you can download it. It would be best to install it using an rpm package from a Fedora related repository if possible, rather than installing it from source.

    Hope it works for you.

    mplayer comes with your Fedora distribution - there should be an rpm for it on your install disk. The mplayer home page is here, and it does look like there are binary codec packages available on the download page

    You'll need to install the version from your original install media, as the mplayer site points you at RPMForge for a binary to install for Fedora.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Fedora 7 is VERY old (in computer terms, it is from the Stone Age). You will probably need to build/install it from source, and then you will probably need a very old version since it undoubtedly has library dependencies that won't work on your system.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I remember I used to use xmms back in the day to play MP3s in Fedora. I see that the package is there in the repos, but I don't remember if mp3 was supported by it out of the box, or if I had to do some fu to get that working.

    Why on earth is your teacher telling you to install Fedora 7, btw? Is that the object of the lesson: to get a dead OS up and running?
