If you have installed yahoo messenger using rpm.. ( it is available in rpm only) then it will create desktop icon etc only after you first execute it. The yahoo messenger get stored in /opts .
BTW.. if you are using gnome. mostly yes then goto
gnome menu-> system tools-> Terminal
And in terminal write "ymessenger" it will open yahoo messnger wizard and you can do further urslef.
I am not sure but redhat don't comes with any useful media player by default so I suggest you to download "gmplayer" or "XINE" both are good media player in Linux , Infact "gmplayer" is the best..
