You can do:

yum search mp3 | less

and use the space bar to scroll through the list. When you find an mp3 player, which there are probably at least five, do:

sudo yum install <package>

There should be an "Add/Remove Programs" menu item in your "Applications" menu on your desktop - try starting there.

You probably need 'mplayer' anyway - it's the swiss army knife multimedia thing, it'll play anything at all.

So $ mplayer *.mp3 will almost certainly play the file.

Just looked for mplayer .rpm on Google and it gave http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/mplayer/ but it's a long time since I've used .rpm type installation.
