playing wav files

I have kept 4 wav files at this location:

Can anybody help me play these wav files. These wav files play in Win98/ME, but I am not able to play it in Linux. I tried Ksoundsys, Kmultimedia, bob, xmms etc in RedHat 7.2. These are recorded using telephone quality in windows sound recorder.

Please HELP!!!

Have you tried going to a command prompt and typing play a.wav? If it doesn't work with any of them, you might not have the 'drivers' loaded. Whilst at the command prompt (and logged in as root), type lsmod.

wav files

I can play other wav files. I cannot play these wav files (a.wav, b.wav, c.wav and d.wav) in particular. Also these wav files works fine on any of the windows media player.
