xmms is a great piece of software to use. First, I'd suggest you upgrade to Fedora for security reasons. Second, please post the exact outcome of your error message.

You can get a full working version of xmms at freshrpms. I support the notion that you should ditch RH9 in favour of Fedora coz there are no more updates for it from Redhat.
