    Hi and Welcome !

    Fedora Core 2 is very old and isn't supported by Fedora Team. I would suggest you install latest version, Fedora 8.
    You can install xine, vlc or xmms through Package Manager, yum in Fedora 8.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thank u casper

    I have a machine with 128mb ram
    Fedora Core itself is very slow now if I install some latest version won't that affect more.

    Sorry to bother you .
    Where would I download FC 8 from?

    Regards
    Sayan.

    128MB RAM is not enough for Fedora. There are a lot of lightweight distros available for low specs machines. Try Damn Small Linux or Puppy Linux.

    You could install Fedora, but with 128MB ram, I suggest you install a lightweight environment such as XFCE. KDE and GNOME may work, but they will be quite slow. Other distributions to look at are Vector Linux and Xubuntu.

    Another good ultra-light window manager is : fluxbox.

    It should work with FC8.

    But I would recommend upgrading the machine with a bit more RAM.

    What type of processor is in it ?

    It can be installed with YUM or download the RPM packages.
    Links are available on the website...

    To get Fluxbox for FC2 try using: RPM Search

    Getting video and mp3 support on FC2 may take some compiling and configuration.
    When using FC8 it's possible to install it directly from various repositories.

    A lot of info can be found at: The Unofficial Fedora FAQ

    Celeron

    Thanks for your advises.
    But the problem is instead of upgrading the system it seems that I buy a new system with high specs.

    Getting newer hardware will help a lot.
