well, if Winamp is active then pressing B will advance to the next track. FYI: Z(prev) X(play) C(pause) V(stop) B(next)

check out the keyboard controls section in the About Winamp box for more keyboard shortcuts

For WA5, If you have global hotkeys enabled in the preferences, by default, pressing ctrl+alt+page down will also advance the track.
