Hello, congratulations for your wise choices! The S639F is an awesome player and Linux is a so cool PC OS! (What is your actual distribution?)

The make playlists you must use your Sony player in MTP mode. International Sony Walkman models are MSC/MTP devices with not manual selection. So you must tweak your Linux kernel settings in order to free your player from the usb-storage mode and use it as a plain MTP device. I have made a post in the forum to explain how to achieve it in the Linux section:

How to set the Linux Kernel to use a MTP/MSC device as MTP only.

After that, you must find a good media manager. Well, that's the hardest part...

You can try Banshee, Amarok, Rhythmbox. I can not tell you for sure which one is working on your distro... this week!
But I find them all uneasy for the task.

For now Banshee works on my openSUSE-11.2 PC. But I warn you that it puts all music files in the root Music folder, if you don't mind. Seeing it working is so new, that I never tried playlists, I always copy entire albums.

I'll be back...
