Re: CD to MP3 Util

I highly recommend abcde.  You'll have to provide your own encoder.

On Woody, abcde defaults to producing OggVorbis files; it's the same
concept as MP3, but free of nasty patent problems.  (See
http://www.xiph.org/ogg/vorbis/ for details on both Vorbis and the
patent issues with MP3.)  The current version of xmms has a Vorbis
player, and ogg123 works for the command-line.
