Hi tonan.

What player are you using? If it's xmms, then you need the mp3 plugin. Get it from here:
http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...mit=Search+...
(the i386 for RedHat 9) and install it with
rpm -ivh <filename>

Regards
Martin

Yea, you need the mp3 plugin to play mp3's in RH9 as redhat did not include it because of certain legal considerations. XMMS is the best player for mp3, ogg etc. You can also try mplayer for listening to audio and playing all kinds of video. Its the best and most versatile video player in linux. Make sure you download all the codecs to play windows media. also download the divx codecs and quicktime codecs. On compiling you get mplayer, gmplayer (GUI) and mencoder (video encoder).
Enjoy!
