Sounds to me like you're missing libjpeg (which both eog and gqview use to manipulate 
jpeg format files).  Does "rpm -qa | grep jpeg" tell you that libjpeg is installed? 
If not, it looks like you can get the rpm from:


Although I'd imagine it's on your fedora CDs as well.

Have you tried opening the files with the Gimp?  ISTR that gimp uses a different jpeg 
handling library.
