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.

You should go to the xmms site and find out what other things you might need to get to run MP3s. Personally, xmms runs all my different types of music files including mp3s. You just must be missing some things it needs.
I believe they have, if I remember correctly. I used Redhat 9 and I seem to remember something coming up in a window when I ran xmms saying that mp3s weren't supported. But I thought the workaround for this was getting the xmms-mp3 plugin.
Something better than kaboodle is JuK, JuK allows you to choose a folder that your mp3s are in and will play all of them in there, whereas kaboodle only allows you to play files and you have to click on each one to play them.
xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-21.i386.rpm is already installed. did not get it from that site, but did get it from an other site offering the same thing.
it did work last time i had RH9 running on that laptop. this is why i think RH has doen something with the kernal to lock me out this time round due to how i answered that pop up notice about licenses.
