    Aparna,
    You can try mplayer also.
    It supports many file types.

    Redhat won't release the mpeg format with it's distro, since it's propietary. A little googling will quickly turn up what your looking for. Xine and Mplayer both are for viewing media files of virtually any format, like mpeg (once the codec is installed), DVD's, Quicktime (again, once you install the codec), etc... Both are great players, check out their respective web-sites for those elusive codecs I mentioned earlier.

    Wine is an open source project to run Windows programs on Linux. Devolopers snatch the open code, make modifications to it, and then sell it as propietary. WineX is typically considered best for playing games, while cros-over office is best for running (obviously) office products. Regardless, WineX will cost you $$$.

    Good Luck, dude.

    You didn't finish your download. .part file is created to store the partial file while downloading.. and once the download is complete you'll get the correct file. re download your wine Happy WINE :P
