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.

Any particular errors ? Try running xmms from a terminal and see if it outputs any specific errors when trying to play ogg files. Most likely it just cant find the lib's. What libs did you install and where are they located at ?
That seems to be your problem. I'm definitely no expert here, but I do believe oggenc is used to create ogg's, not mp3's. So the file extension might be 1 thing throwing your player off. Try simply changing your file extension on 1 or 2 files to .ogg and then try playing them again.
Other ideas include re-ripping them using an mp3 encoder to create mp3's or using the ogg encoder and creating oggs, but not an ogg encoder to create mp3's or vice versa
OK. Well that worked but now I am curios as to why it would save it as an mp3 if it is unplayable like that. After spending so much time ripping the cd's is thier anyway to change all of the file extensions, with out doing it manually?
That might be a valid feature request you might consider sending to them (or doing yourself and submitting to them). I can see how easily it would be for someone not to notice that (although I was lame enough to look at every option before proceeding )
