RedHat disabled mp3 support in XMMS for legal reasons....
you can download a patch that fixes this.
Klick the link below, and just download and install it with
rpm -Uvh xmms-mp3-something.rpm

You can also install mpg321 which is a command line player. Or install the "original" mpg123 which may or may not be on their distribution disks.

I suggest checking out ogg's. See . I know they provide the various ogg tools. The format sounds better, is not proprietary, and produces smaller files.

My suggestion is to download libmad from debian, compile and install it. To transform from mp3 to ogg, download mp32ogg from debian.

* I have mandrake 9.2 and this is what I did.

1)- I double clicked on the CD Rom icon on the desktop.

2)- RT Click on the music file you want to listen to.

3)- scroll down to "actions"

4)- then go to "create audio CD"

5)- open "K3b- The CD Kreator"

6)- then drag music file or files(s) to player on the far right

7)- Click on the right PLAY arrow.

This may be a crude way, but one that works.
