    If you have the original CD's, then you're better off re-ripping the tracks straight into ogg. Both MP3 and ogg are 'lossy' formats - you lose some information each time you re-encode it.

    You could try encoding in FLAC (which is completely lossless), then re-encoding to a lossy format if you need it for a particular portable player.

    There's a simple command line app called mp32ogg - It's only a perl script I believe so it should be easy enough to get. I don't use RedHat but I would imagine you can install it from the yum repositories.
