Question MP3 issue

A nice easy one for you..!

I cant get MP3's to play in any of the players, Do they not support MP3 out of the box or do i have a conf prob??

It will play MPG + AVI files ok

Tried XMMS, Noatun + Kaboodle but none of them like MP3's

Sorry for what im sure is a idiots question!!

Slackware 9.1
AMD 3200+
