Ick. I started xmms on my desktop, and (at my resolution) the GUI is
unusable. I guess it's supposed to look like a sleek, black stereo. Since I
use KDE, I ended up using KDE Media Player (Noatun). Nice, simple GUI with
obvious buttons and a standard menubar.

Thanks. I'm using cdparanoia since I already had it installed. From the
discussion of ripping -> .wav -> .mp3 for a good trade-off of quality vs.
size, I realized why I might want .mp3 (especially after seeing the size of
the .wav files cdparanoia generated).
Of course, my next question is going to be "How do I burn a custom audio CD
so that I can mix tracks from various CDs and play it on a normal CD player?"
I haven't seen much about that topic. Most of the docs are about getting
the files onto a computer, not in creating audio CDs.
