Ah, well, yes xmms would work but as distributed from SUSE it will not play
mp3, either locally or streamed. Who knows what else is crippled
intentionally.

Just add this packman mirror to your installation sources :
http://mirror.geht-schon.de/packman.links2linux.de/suse/10.2/
and it will fix xmms and a few other things that need fixing.
They also have a fully working xine and mplayer there.
