I would use apt. Download the first file listed in the Fedora Core 1 link on the link .... like this:

rpm -Uvh filename
edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list and make it say this:

CODE
# Fedora Linux 1
rpm http://ayo.freshrpms.net fedora/linux/1/i386 core updates freshrpms

### Dag Apt Repository for Red Hat Fedora Core 1 (rhfc1)
rpm http://apt.sw.be redhat/fc1/en/i386 dag

#newrpms.sunsite.dk
rpm http://newrpms.sunsite.dk/apt/ redhat/en/i386/fc1 newrpms

#ATrpms
rpm http://apt.physik.fu-berlin.de fedora/1/en/i386 at-testing at-bleeding at-good at-stable


Now to upgrade your system, do this:

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade


(that will upgrade all your packages to the newest versions .... it can take a signifgant amount of time, but it will allow you then to easily install packages and have all the dependancies resolve automatically).

Now you can either install the following media players:

apt-get install mplayer xmms gstreamer

Or install synaptic ... a gui package manager with:

apt-get install synaptic

Then run synaptic as root and install updated packages via the GUI....
