Open Source Media Player for Customized playlists using Thousands of Short Audio Snippets?

I'm looking for an open source MP3 (or OGG) player for creation of educational listening drills. Must be portable, and flexible for creation, editing, burning of playlists and queues -- details on its use in here...

The MP3 (or OGG) player must have/be:
-Portable, can be distributed and run from CD without installation
-Simple, user-friendly interface
-Very flexible playlist/queue creation
-Preferably, have the ability to burn playlists to CD or sync to portable device
I'm creating a listening drill CD for a music class. The CD will have literally thousands of audio snippets, most only 3-5 seconds long. These will be divided into several folders, subfolders, and sub-subfolders, based on category.
-I would like students to be able to quickly select any combination of folders/categories and create a custom queue for shuffling
-I would like students to be able to save these queues as custom playlists.
-IDEALLY I'd like them to easily burn their custom playlists to CD (or sync to their mp3 player) so that they can practice their listening "on the road"
I would like this to be user friendly for students with little computer experience.
Any recommendations on an open source media player that will fit these requirements?
