Oh, and I forgot to mention, if you want to be able to rip CDs to
MP3, you need to have "lame" on your system. Similarly, if you
want to rip to AAC or MP4 formats, then you need "faac". SuSE 9.1
comes with lame, but not faac, but the xmcd download page provide
links to where you can download it. Xmcd has built-in capability
to rip to Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, WAV, AIFF, and raw PCM formats without
additional software. If you have a fast enough CD drive and CPU, then
you can even listen to the music as you rip.
