What's bad about the XMMS interface? I see the standard cassette player
controls. The way I see it, your first problem should be getting a good
desktop environment. If your father and sister can live with any
existing Linux desktop or window manager (KDE, GNOME, Blackbox, IceWM,
etc) they can survive XMMS.
Anyway, you can try loading an XMMS skin. The Debian package,
unfortunately, doesn't include any. You have to download them:
