    Use cdparanoia, or ripperX (a frontend).

    freshmeat.net should provide you with the needed url's

    Ogg is the way to go. Try encoding something at 64kps for one song and compare them. You'll be amzed.

    I should add, ripping to ogg is harder in Linux. What you'll use [bold]cdda2wav[/bold] to rip audio CD tracks (remember, audio CD tracks do NOT have a file type) to wav format. Once that's done, you should rip the .wav files to ogg using [bold]oggenc[/bold]. I've heard that there is a program called cdda2ogg which is a PERL script but I've never actually used it.
