I need to play FLAC. If there isn't a way, how can I covert these bad boys to something useable.

FLACs are playable in players like VLC. You can also convert them to other formats with a program like Max or XLD (X Lossless Decoder).

EDIT: I prefer XLD because its LAME MP3 options are better documented (with clear, universal terms) than Max's.

You can play them with VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/) and convert them with Max (http://sbooth.org/Max/).

Yeah, I had a bunch of FLAC music stored on external HD's from before the time I migrated to OS X about a year ago... I use Max to convert my FLAC files into ALAC &/or 320kbps VBR .aac; Max has been a godsend for me!
