    Hit "Run Application..." and enter xmms
    That should run it.

    Can't you just right click and select "Open File..." ?

    i do, and the program comes up, but it doesn't seem to be playing. (this is an mp3 on my computer. but i can't play from an audio cd either)

    the audio player that comes up says xmms 1.2.10, but i installed xmms-kde-3.1, so i dont' know what's going on

    can you get any sound at all to work?
    also xmms-kde-3.1 just means the package was compiled for KDE 3.1,
    xmms-1.2.10 is probably the same program.
    Also make sure you didn't mute the sound, that you clicked play, and that the none of the sound settings are all the way down.

    well when i installed fedora core 3 (last night) i did the sound test and it worked.

    when i hit play, it brings up the thing to pick a file. but it should play it automatcially, right?

    Once you opened the file, yes, it should play automatically.
    As for audio CDs, you need to make sure the analog audio cable is hooked up between your soundcard and the cd drive.

    but it doesn't. so there's something that i didn't do. when i try to play a cd, it brings up the cd player and it starts playing, but no sound. i go to the next track and i get a little static, and that's it. so then i tried an mp3 and i can't get that to work either. what should i do?

    Maybe you need to install the mp3 library available here.
    Install that along with xmms from the same place xmms
    FreshRPMs which is where those links go, also carries a number of other useful RPMs for Fedora Core.
    It might just be easier to install this RPM, and then open a terminal and enter:
    Code:
    yum install xmms.i386
    That should install xmms and all the things needed to run it automatically.
