playing MP3s with xmms



I have SoundBlaster PCI128 sound card for which I have configured sound
support into the kernel (2.2.12) as follows:

  CONFIG_SOUND=y
  CONFIG_SOUND_ES1370=y
  CONFIG_SOUND_ES1370_JOYPORT_BOOT=y

This is good enough to let me play audio CDs. But when I tried to play some
MP3s with xmms, I kept getting error messages about the sound card being
locked or in use by some other app.

Can someone point out to me what I have to do to play MP3s ?? 

Do I have compile in some other sound options into the kernel ?

Do I need the Alsa drivers ??

Thanks.
