MP3 's on 486's?

I am curious if anyone has tried playing MP3's on a 486 (running Linux).. How
bad is it?

The reason I'm asking is I'm thinking of setting up a dedicated MP3 box and want
to see whether I can go 486 or should I just get a slower pentium....

Also. Does anyone out there happen to have a CD-Rom drive that I can use to
install Linux with? (Preferably free or DIRT cheap...?) (The extra CD rom drive
I have doesn't seem to want to be recognized by Linux etc...)

Thank you kindly,
