What's wrong with Amarok, Banshee, Rhythmbox, Beep-media-player, remember all of them can play mp3, make sure you've installed the supporting framework like gstreamer,ffmpeg,xine etc.

Add a packman repository to your installation sources. It will have the versions of xmms and audacity, etal. that will work with mp3s. In the YaST2 software manager, you can set the first filter by repository. When you do, a second filter appears, where you can select search. Then you can search for xmms and replace the packages with the packman versions. You will need to install or reinstall dependencies. Applying the two filters narrows things down for you.

XMMS should play MP3's "out of the box", it doesn't even require codecs.
