    Code:
    tar -zxvf <package>
    it will create a <package> folder in same location. check README file in that folder for further instructions.

    for mp3 and video files, install xmms and xine packages.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    For a guide on installing software from source, take a look at here. For mp3 and video, I suggest you enable the Dag rpm repo (the instructions are on the site) and then install VLC (or Xine) and libdvdcss using yum. e.g.
    Code:
    yum install vlc libdvdcss
