How do I....

How do i find out if i have mp3 software already installed on my RedHat 9 linux. Im not using GUI b/c it kills my computers speed so im just typing through the command line. Also when i try access the internet VIA command line, i try lynx but it says command not found. How do i access the net thru the command line?

I do not think redhat has any mp3 support out of the box. They purposly left it out do to legal reasons. I know mplayer can play mp3s from the command line. Mplayer will need to be installed on your machine.

You might also want to try links (sounds the same spelt differently)
