How to use XXMS?

Hi, I am a newbie, just installed Red Hat 9 for the first time

As a first thing i want to play music (mp3s). I went to the xxms website, downloaded the redhat9 version, and double clicked on the .rpm file, which seemed to install it.

So when I'm inside it, if I try to play a song, I dont hear sound, and it races along the song at like 5 sec/real sec.
Also, a .wav version of the file gets created in my home dir

What am I doing wrong?

Under options->preferences (right-click to get this menu), look where it says "Output Plugin." You're probably using Disk Writer. You'll want to switch it to OSS or aRts.
