I googled for the model number, "ogg", and "linux" and found a few good pages. The actual firmware I downloaded from Samsung's site (http://www.samsung.com/download/ then click "Global Download Center" and accept the disclaimer that if you load the wrong firmware, it's your problem), then find a similar but slightly different model number (ie the last few letters differ) to get the different firmware (on the page with the actual file link, it should mention which countries it's intended for).
For the YP-T9 model, at least, firmware filenames with "_MTP.zip" is the US firmware that was already installed, and "_UMS.zip" was the file to load to get better USB and Ogg support. (Eg, I dl'd the file "20070322175558375_YP-T9_V1.67_UMS.zip"). Updating is just a matter of unzipping the file and copying the contents to the root or data directory on the device (either on Windows (what I did) or using mtp-sendfile on Linux, it comes with libmtp (http://libmtp.sourceforge.net)), the T9 reflashes its firmware on boot if it sees the files. NOTE, this may well be somewhat or completely different for your device. YMMV, etc.
Even if you don't find appropriate firmware, libmtp may do what you need. There's also mtpfs (http://www.adebenham.com/mtpfs/) which is a FUSE filesystem that supports MTP devices. I haven't tried it though.
