Theoretically, there aren't any WMA codecs for Linux, because it's a proprietary codec. So's WMV.

So theoretically... you'd have to boot up in Windows, and use something to decompress them into WAV, and then recompress them as MP3 or OGG/Vorbis.

You can listen wma audio files in Linux without converting them if you want. You will need to get MPlayer togheter with the codecs it provides (MPlayer is also needed to convert the files in the link uselpa provided).
You can get a Slackware package of Mplayer (comes with codecs) here: http://www.linuxpackages.net/pkg_details.php?id=5626

There's a file inside it with a list of needed packages called: slack-required
If you don't have a package listed there, and Slackware official packages doesn't have it, get search for it on: http://linuxpackages.net

Read the links uselpa and jong357 gave, they are scripts that use mplayer and lame and convert them.
Just copy the script into a file, make that file executable and run it.

The link uselpa provided (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/answers/352) tells you step by step what to do.
Basically the text you've to copy into the file is a bash script, that reads all the wma files in the current directory and converts them into mp3 using mplayer to read them and lame to encode them in mp3.
What's the thing you don't understand?

Why can't you make a bash script on that computer?
Don't you have access to a Windows computer, I think that MediaPlayer can do this kind of conversion (starting with version 10)?

Well, it's not that difficult.

This is what you have to do:

wma > wav:
mplayer -ao pcm -aofile file.wav file.wma

wav > mp3:
lame -h file.wav file.mp3

(So you need MPlayer and LAME)

a script to convert wav, ogg, mp3, mpc, flac, ape or wma files into wav, ogg, mp3, mpc, flac or ape files. with an easy to use interface it's actually possible to fill in the tags for a few formats, and choose the quality of compression.
