    Using Redhat (no mp3 playback?)


    I was wondering why I cant listen to any of my mp3s or anything from Redhat? This is my first week with linux and its been tough but im finally starting to figure things out. I dont know why I cant listen to any mp3s though. I actually havent heard a single peep from this GUI... come on now? Can someone help me out to listening to Mp3s.. and if not.. can you tell me how to view my other hard drives which are NTFS anyway? cause i cant seem to find them on my file management programs! thanks for your help!! :P

    Unfortunatelly , (!) using RedHat you can not mount your NTFS partition directly.
    Visit
    http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/downloads.html#ntfs
    Download the drivers and install them.
    then
    Code:
    man mount
    Again RedHat does not support mp3 due to pattent. so visit
    http://havardk.xmms.org/dist/xmms-1.2.7-rh8-rh9-rpm/
    install the package...so meet mp3.
    Just a Newbie....Looking 4 Info....
