perhaps a sticky should be made with guidelines on how to enable MP3 support. a different sticky can be made in each forum with guidelines appropriate for each. i just thought of this idea after seeing 2 topics regarding mp3 support in the SuSE forum. it seems like a common question and it could keep the number of topics down or at least allow people to quickly link to the sticky in any topics.
This doesn't seem like a bad idea. Another distro which I'm always getting complaints/questions regarding .mp3's is Ubuntu (and the rest of it's family). I find myself recommending Ubuntu to someone who would like to tryout linux only to speak with them later to get a what-bull-there's-no-.mp3-support type of answer.
