Did you try xmms? It looks and acts just like Windows Winamp. It even supports the same skins. And most likely it is shipped with your FC2 CD's

i prefer xmms, too. but you could also try rhythmbox, which is really good for organizing media files.

also, u can try rhythmbox or juk (but i think mp3 support has been ripped off them too) - so u might need to recompile stuff.

btw, i my personal opinion, juk rocks (juk is included with kde)

IT's no problem to get the mp3 plugins for FC2 xmms. A quick google will bring up some downloads. Mandrake includes the mp3 support at this stage.
