I am guessing you're on a redhat/fedora linux box?? , which doesn't come with mp3 support by default.. but you can install the latest xmms, and get it working..

And please include what distro you are running, that way it make's it easy for people to help you out..

If you don't know your distribution, open an x terminal and try these commands:

# What is the distribution
cat /etc/.product
cat /etc/.issue
cat /etc/issue
cat /etc/issue.net
