Alright here's an updation:
I came to the conclusion that I don't really care for xmms that much, so I got rid of it, and in replacement of it I downloaded and installed Zinf. I'm not sure how much better Zinf is from xmms, but from experience with both [xmms not working] Zinf is much better. I can play mp3's now without any problems and I even have a nice, neat, little mp3 manager that comes included with Zinf. Also, because I'm hurting on the mp3's I downloaded and installed Napshare, a file sharing program for Linux. It's not the best, but it's good for now. SO I'm playing music now without any problems, if anyone cares to know. I just thought I'd share with y'all so you know I don't need any more assistance. Thanks.
