Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Do you have 2 soundcards installed? I had this problem earlier today. XMMS was detecting my onboard audio, while my audigy sound card is what I use for output. IF this is your case, or someone else that is looking at this, make sure that you have the right audio device selected. Don't assume that it auto-detects the right card. You can select your audio device when you click the "configure" buttoon when picking the output plugin. Don't know if this helps, just my two cents.
It seems a lot of distros disable MP3's by default because of licencing issues. Just make sure you have downloaded the appropriate MP3 decoders. I had the same problem back in the day with FC2, and it is as easy as googling for the appropriate decoder and installing the RPM. In fact, I had the same issue with some video formats too and came to the solution of MPlayer's codecs combined with Xine. Beautiful.
