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 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
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?
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.
