1.
create a keyframe at point (A), by selecting the frame and pressing "F6"

2.
drag the sound file "4-04_v2" from the library and drop it on point (A)

3.
Now select teh keyframe (A) again, and press CTRL+F3, it will open up "Properties panel"

4.
In "Properties panel" set "Sync" as "event" under "Sound"

5.
compile and test the SWF

Just for simplification:

If you have the keyframe selected, you can drag the mp3 from the library and to anywhere on the stage, and it will be played from that selected keyframe :)

Also, a educational point:
If you set the "Sync" to "event", as Aneesh wrote (4), the sound will be played when it has loaded. If you rather set the "Sync" to "stream", the music clip will follow the timeline. If you need to syncronize the animation with the sound, you must use "stream".

Good luck :)
