    there's no such thing as [italic]Linux 8[/italic]. judging from the symptoms, you probably mean red hat 8, which lacks the mp3 decoding libs. go out and grab the rpm's for mpeg123 or mad and probably the corresponding player plugins too (try rpmfind, or freshmeat)

    type this:
    'su -'
    -and-
    rpm -Uvh http://staff.xmms.org/priv/redhat8/xmms-mpg123-1.2.7-13.i386.rpm

    Now mp3s should play just fine
