-Installing lame codec..-

Well, I recently set up red hat 8.0. I then tried to play some mp3's while experiencing the mysteries using the audio player (xmms..), but to my great disappointment found out that the appropriate codec was missing!! dammned I said.
Has anyone an idea? Thanks locos.

Have you tried to install yet ? Any errors ? You know, there are great docs out there on the web on describing how to install software, either if its a RPM or tar.gz your trying to install.
