    Why not just use MPlayer? it supports just about any format you can think of (including realmedia), and it works just about anywhere, even without X. It also has some very nice postprocessing options, especially the high quality video denoiser.

    I strongly reccomend upgrading to Fedora Core 3, which has kernel 2.6.9, which is pretty recent seeing as the latest version is 2.6.10.
