Hi Ralph

I added the following intro, do you believe more is required.

The following procedures will help setup multimedia support under Centos
5. After completing the steps listed below, you should be able to play
Dvd's on your computer also you will be able to view certain media
formats for example Xvid, dvix, quicktime etc.. Also you will have
mplayer intergrated within your browser which will allow you to view
streaming video/ audio content from within firefox browser.  Some
recommendations should be mentioned pertaining to the yum Priorities
plug-in. This will prevent accidentally overwriting packages from the
base repositories. Also note the following needs to be performed as root
user in a command line or terminal.
