    Can you play any sounds at all in X?
    Code:
    ps aux > /dev/dsp
    Try that and see if you get any sounds(ps aux makes interesting tones) to test if your sound card is working corectly.

    What happens when you try to play the mp3's? BTW you dont use a : after the host, its just telnet server 25

    Are you using RedHat 8? In that case, your MP3 problem is because RedHat ships v8 without MP3 support at all. Go to http://www.xmms.org/ and download the MP3 plugin there.
