If you want to run TeX Live from the CD and use AUCTeX you have two

1) Tell your package management system that you have software with the
   capabilities of TeX Live installed on your system in order to satisfy
   the dependencies defined for the AUCTeX package.  Something like this
   is possible with APT, not sure about RPM.  But if it is, this should
   allow you to install the AUCTeX RPM package.

2) Download the AUCTeX sources and install manually without using the
   package system, as you tried before.

In any case you will need to adapt `PATH' for the TeX Live binaries to
be found, as suggested before.

See (info "(emacs)International") <-- Type `C-x C-e' here.
Especially the sections about language environments and coding systems.

Hint: If you have a UTF8 locale, the default coding system should be
UTF8.  And if you have a recent version of Emacs, it should be able to
derive the coding system from the argument you supplied to the inputenc
