I already installed the above stuff and it took.  It just does not recognize 
the WMA files.  I'll figure this out eventually.

Now, a new "problem":

I store most of my music files on a windoes server and would like to know what 
I need to do to get Amarok on Fedora to recogize the NTFS filesystem URL.  
Amarok seems to complain that it does not know how to use the smb://<music 
files> or so it seems.  Maybe I need to install the NTFS support files for 
this one, but I will defer this since it seems I don't really need to do this 
since it *seems* to be already supported...

What I did was to open 'Computer->Network->SystemName->M$->Music', the
drag and drop a Music Directory into Playlist and the playlist was populated 
with all of the supported music files.  It is interesting that 
the 'Directory' column shows the 'smb://SystemName/...' for all of the files 
that were dropped there.  But when I double-click the specific file to play, 
an error pops up saying:

No suitable input plugin. This often means that the url's protocol is not 
supported. Network failures are other possible causes.
smb://<SystemName>/M$/Music/classical/Mozart-Requeim.mp3

What do I need to do to get this to work?

Thanks!
