You need the xmms-cdread package, then you need to enable the plugin in
xmms preferences. Also, make sure cd-audio isnt muted (apt-get install
aumix-gtk) and that the cable is connected.

Grip is my favorite ripper, and ive tried danmn near everyone in the
debian package system.

You need an encoder, like lame http://lame.freshmeat.com (i think thats
the url) to encode mp3s. Grip comes with an ogg encoder.

I prefer mp3s, but thats all it is, a preferance. I encode at 192
