First find it:

find /home/username | grep xmms

Then:

rpmbuild --rebuild http://www.xmms.org/files/1.2.x/rpm/xmms-1.2.10-1.src.rpm

The created RPM is then in the /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/ directory and can be installed using:

rpm -ivh  /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/xmms-1.2.10-1.rpm

I am assuming that you are on RedHat/Fedora.

You have downloaded the source rpm (.src.rpm) which need to be rebuilt and install.  Installation of source rpm is as follows:
[root@bigboy tmp]# rpmbuild --rebuild filename.src.rpm
then you should be able to find the .rpm file in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/`uname -m`.  So to install it:
[root@bigboy tmp]# rpm -Uvh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/`uname -m`/xmms-1.2.10-1.rpm

If you have already rebuilt the src.rpm, just do the second step.

so, you mean it will be smart enough to create a link/ menu for easy access?

I'm new to Linux, so I guess i'm asking a dumb question ;-)

rpmbuild --rebuild
builds the rpm for installation using rpm -Uvh command.  It depends on the packagers (the people who created the .src.rpm or .rpm at the first place) whether they put in the link/menu.  If not, you have to put it into the menu and give it a nice little icon.

hmm.. actually the simpler way out is not to install the xmms from xmms.  The trick is here http://home.gagme.com/greg/linux/fc5-tips.php#mp3

That you just get the rpm from freshrpms..  Just to make it a bit clearer, do:

# rpm -ihv http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/5/i386/livna-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
# rpm -ihv http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/5/i386/RPMS.freshrpms/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm
# yum -y install xmms-mp3 xmms-faad2 gstreamer-plugins-ugly libmad libid3tag

and you should be able to see xmms in Application->Sound and Video...

i tried to download the 2 files:
http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/5/i386/livna-release-5-4.noarch.rpm
http://ayo.freshrpms.net/fedora/linux/5/i386/RPMS.freshrpms/freshrpms-release-1.1-1.fc.noarch.rpm
