OOps. Thanks. Now this seems to have provided most valuable information:
on that webpage it's stated very clearly banshee can support mp3 (though
rhythmbox solution maybe still need to google around a bit) by
installing helix-banshee rpm package

helix-banshee rpm is not in official SuSE 10.2 repository, I also tried
packman and searched SuSE guru (by SuSE guru web inteface, so might have
missed). Finally I was able to find helix-banshee package from here:
(I am not sure if I am downloaded the right version because the URI
doesn't indicate which version of SuSE this rpm is for).

Finding helix-banshee conflicts with banshee, I removed banshee package
and replaced it with helix-banshee. Result: now banshee can recognize
mp3 format and import them properly, but plaing mp3 doesn't work: no
error message at all, no sound, simply clicking on 'play' have no
effect, music play progress does not grow. (meanwhile, MPlayer can play
mp3 just fine). I think if I have gong this far, digging further into
all sound config options might finally get hexlix-banshee play
something. Need time. Will post result when I can find a clue.
