You will need to provide more information:
-What sound hardware are you using?
-Which distribution are you using (there's no such thing as Linux 8.0 :-) - you may mean Redhat Linux 8.0 or Mandrake Linux 8.0).

Additionally, please run `lsmod` from a terminal as root, and post the output.

Personally I solved this problem by editing XMMS Preferences (Ctrl+P). In Preferences I selected ARTS drivers as Output and then it worked fine.
