 If you installed xmms from ports you also have to install the mp3 package.
1) go to:  # cd /usr/ports/packages/i386/all/
2) do: #  pkg_add  xmms-mp3-1.2.10.tgz  and
         #  pkg_add  xmms-vorbis-1.2.10.tgz  (if you want to listen to
ogg vorbis)
3) To listen to cd's you must change the mixerctl inputs.cd.mute to off like so:
     $  mixerctl inputs.cd.mute=off
inputs.cd.mute: on -> off

  Yes I like the OpenBSD song too : )
