Hi Hal:

I'm not sure if what I'm telling you will help... I mean to edit a playlist
that will then play with mplayer (which plays flac files).

The command is:
$ mplayer -playlist list.m3u

In case you want to play it choosing songs randomly:
$ mplayer -playlist list.m3u -shuffle

If you don't want to play it from xterm there are ways to run it from
graphical mode. (In N770 there's load-applet-run that does it... in N8XX I
think there's a launcher that does the job...)

Besides, if you don't know how to manually edit a playlist file I can tell
you how to do it, or even send you a script to do it.
