I dont personally use Fedora, but from what i hear it sounds like Fedora's xmms doesnt come pre-packaged with MP3 support. i guess this is because of some patent restriction or something, but all you should have to do is download an rpm that gives you mp3 support. try searching google for one, they are all over the place.

hope this helps.
