Thanks for all the suggestions!  I've gotten alsaplayer to work.  not

I'm staying away from the command line ones. =P  I need the 'bloated'

RhythmBox seems awesome, except i'm having a heck of a time installing

Using Debian and apt-get i've gotten the program installed but i'm
missing a plugin/module called "gnomevfssrc".  I am assuming that's in
the plugin package which apt-get installed, but I cannot find just the
gnomevfssrc to see if it's really installed.  

I think Rythmbox will what i will be using, if i can get it to play...

thanks again,
