Spell out your words, and write clearly. And if you'd like help, provide details.

What version/distro of Linux? You installed mp3blaster from WHAT? Source? Package? What kind of sound and other hardware? Are you able to play any sounds at all?

RedHat 9?? That's very, VERY old, so it's not surprising you're having problems. First thing I'd suggest is installing something current. Second is to try some of the other MP3 players out there, but chances are they won't work either, given the age of your OS.
