Oh, and if KDE 3.x has been setup correctly, all you have to do is pop
in the audio cd and type:
in the konqueror location bar. The IO slave will bring up WAV, MP3 and
OGG versions of the audio tracks, complete with CDDB info. When you
copy the files from the "cd" to your HD they are automatically ripped
and encoded at whatever bitrate you set in KControl.
This has to be setup correctly before hand, and I'm not sure if any of
the large distros do this by default. (Gentoo does, and it can be made
to work with Debian.)
While this is far cooler than Grip, I find Grip a better tool for just
making MP3s. You get more control over how you want the files to be named.
