I think XMMS comes with Mandrake, you can use that.

If you don't have it installed, type in a console (as root)
urpmi xmms
There are also other players, like mpg123 (text mode), there's build in player in KDE, there are also plyers that handle both video and sound files. If you don't have any, run software installation program in Mandrake and choose 'Multimedia' section.
