playing MP3s from an NTFS partition

I have my NTFS partition mounted as read-only under RedHat 8.0, and so far I'm having ZERO problems. I can access everything on the partition, even got it to auto-mount at startup.

However, I was just wondering why I am unable to play MP3s from this partition. Do the media players (XMMS, Kaboodle, etc.) require write access to play an MP3? Is there something I'm missing? Some software that might help?

Any suggestions/help would be great.
Thanks in advance!

Ah, another Red Hat mp3 problem, scroll down to the Redhat 8 update near the bottom of the page.
