what program are you trying to use to play Mp3's.
Also: are you using gnome or KDE? ofr gnome, try using rhythmbox, for KDE use xmms for example. there's probably a better one for KDE, but xmms should work. If it doesn't pleas eexplain what cuases the error.

As far as mp3 support, RH stopeed supporting it officially for legal reasons.. I would totally google for 'enabling mp3 support for RH9'

as far as I know, RH9 ships with no support for playing mp3 files, owing to concerns over patent infringements.

choices -

- replace the applications you're trying to use for mp3 playback (eg, xmms) with their 'uncrippled' versions available off the web;

- or, try a different distro....

You need to install xmms-mp3. To get it, install packages using apt or yum and configure freshrpms or dag.
