Linux MP3 Players

I have two questions. First, are there any good mp3 players for Linux? On windows I normally just use Media Player, and they don't have a Linux version of it that I know of. Second, is there a way to listen to songs from a fat32 partitioned drive or copy them over to my linux drive without resorting to writing them any external media? Thanks for any help.

i don't have one now... but in the past i used the apollo player..
also, you should be able to play from a windows partition.. just simply mount it and you should have access to browse all the files there, also you can add it to your fstab to mount automatically so you don't have to manually mount each time you need to get to it.
