Visit the section called "yum" first and set it up as instructed. yum is a package manager for Fedora with a graphical frontend called yum extender or yumex. After that visit the section called XMMS or Beep Media Player. In either case you'll be told how to get a package called xmms-mp3 or bmp-mp3 via yum which lets you play mp3s.

Good luck
