No sound when playing audio files on Fedora using command line players

I am using Fedora Core 2 and is trying to play audio files using either ogg123 or mpg321 as command line players.

I have tested playing both ogg and mp3 files using xmms successfully, however when i try to use the 2 command line players mentioned above, there is no sound output and the following is the output i got:

[root@localhost ogg]# ogg123 theGREENzebra-trancExplorer.ogg

Audio Device: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) output

Playing: theGREENzebra-trancExplorer.ogg
