A distro like Red Hat or Mandrake would be good.

You need Red Hat in my opinion. But be aware that Red Hat 9 was relised without MP3 support. You can download a Mplayer RPM though. (thats what I use). If you have no idea about RPM's or installing I would pick Mandrake, as far as I know the latest version have MP3 suport built in. Hope it helps.

Try this: it runs down the major distros in a very quick and useful way.
