I am much more familiar with 32 bit and would tend to lean towards
Fedora Core 6 (or maybe wait for CentOS 5) for workstations wanting to
run media content but it would seem that you would need to install a
media player application like mplayer or vlc. I don't know of any group
list for installing them.

Anyway, this should somewhat work for (recalling from Fedora)...

yum install mplayer mplayerplug-in mplayer-skins mplayer-fonts

yum install xmms xmms-mp3 xmms-aac xmms-skins

lame probably works too.
