For video, I use Mplayer and the associated plugins. See the article Fedora Installation Notes on the subject.

I assume you are using the Gnome desktop GUI. If this is the case, don't install the KDE player.

Windows need to see a fat32 or NTFS partition on the drive for it to start the installation process. It can't read Linux partitions or unformatted drive space.
However, if you install Windows now, it will overwrite the MBR and you will only get the ability to boot Windows. The best way to dual boot both, would have been to install Windows first, then Fedora. Then the Fedora installation would have configured grub to dual boot both Windows and Fedora.
It is a bit tricky to get both to work if you install Windows last, since Fedora's grub does not know about the Windows installation. Some have done it, but it is not easy for novice users of Linux.

Do you have any sound at all on the system?
What type of audio files are you trying to play?
The same rules apply to SuSE. There are patent issues on some formats, so it's important to know what type of files you are trying to play and what player you are using in SuSE.

It may be that sound is just muted. Did you check the sound mixer and see if sound is turned up?
By just telling us that you need sound driver, we know nothing about your system. If in fact sound is not working because of a driver issue, then we really need to know what soundcard is in your system.
Is this onboard sound, or are you using a PCI soundcard? If you don't know, please post the make and exact model of your system.
I also just noticed that you posted the same question on another thread. Pick one thread and go with that we can keep all your relevent information under one thread.

I have not used SuSE for a while, so the memory fades.
I can think of a couple of other possible problems. this system only has the PCI soundcard on it and no onboard sound?
What is the make and model of the sound card?
