How have you downloaded music?

I tried to download from walmart, which would have gone fine with a windows box because of the wma files. I found that mplayer will play and decode wma files, but I couldn't get it to work for me. How have you guys done it and from where? Do you have problmes with windows licenses?

I use red hat 9

I have win32 codecs installed. I was getting errors about it not being able to find codecs.conf and input.conf, so it would use the default. I found codecs.conf and input.conf so I moved them here and I don't get those errors anymore, but I still can't play these wma files. It would seem that it is looking for the license, but maybe not. What am I doing wrong?
