Not sure about all your questions but cd ripping is easy with Linux. I use Grip, but you have to install an mp3 encoder if that's what you want (Ogg Vorbis is there by default). I use an encoder called Lame.

My wireless card recommendation is any with a Prism chipset - I've never had to do more than copy the firmware from the Prism 54 project to the appropriate directory(s) - in my case /etc/firmware and /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware.
Probably the best place to find out what chipset a card uses is the list on the ndiswrapper wiki, as the list at linux-wlan.org is getting a bit out of date.
