First, Make sure that RealAudio is installed on your system. You are looking for a file named "realplay." As root:
# find / -name realplay

On my Mandrake system, it was installed as /usr/bin/X11/realplay. Since Mandrake is based on Red Hat, I'm assuming it would be under the same location in RH.

If realplay isn't installed, you'll have to either install from your installation disks or download the free player from

Now in Mozilla, select Preferences -> Navigator -> Helper Applications, then click the "New Type" button. Fill out as follows:

Description of type: audio/realaudio
File extension: ram
MIME type: audio/x-pn-realaudio
Application to use: /usr/bin/X11/realplay

Click "OK." You should now be able to play RealAudio streams.

Drop me a line if you run into problems!
