Quoting the RHL 8.0 release notes:

Due to patent licensing, and conflicts between such patent licenses and the licenses of application source code, MPEG-1/2 audio layer 3 (mp3) support has been removed from applications in Red Hat Linux such as XMMS and noatun. Red Hat suggests the use of Ogg Vorbis(TM), an open, non-proprietary, patent-and-royalty-free compressed audio format.

Well, like he said, sounds like a medium problem, might need to burn a new copy of CD 2, and download a new iso while you are at it just to make sure it all works.

If after that it still doesn't work, then there are other things we can try.

Cool

Why does it ask for CD#2? How are you trying to install it? It should be:

su (enter password)
rpm -ivh filename.rpm

I just installed it on RH8 and it didn't ask for any disk.

Here is a solution. Go to < www.limewire.org >. Download the free version for Linux, and play your .mp3 files with the built in limewire player.
