Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Graveman is just as good as K3B (in my opinion) and it's a GNOME app so it used GTK to draw itself and will fit in better with your GNOME desktop. Try both though and see which you prefer. K3B is closer to Nero for Windows from memory, Graveman is much more to the point.
To see if
there is support for Mp3 run sox -h and look for it under the
list of supported file formats as "mp3".
so that's what I did and:
$ sox -h
sox: Version 12.17.7
Supported file formats: aiff al au auto avr cdr cvs dat vms gsm hcom la lu maud mp3 nul ossdsp prc raw sb sf sl smp sndt sph 8svx sw txw ub ul uw voc vorbis vox wav wve
dunno where I got sox, but I have no record of having it installed through yum (although my record is incomplete), but it's in my rpm database. Maybe there's no sox with rpm enabled in the official repos, but there must be one in some of the other repos.
cs-cam: did you install graveman from source or did you find an rpm with mp3 enabled somewhere? (or maybe you never use mp3 )
Well... actually, although nero was under-windows program, I was actually satisfied, simple, clean easy and fast burnning with all you need.
I wasn't meaning it in a negative way, I used Nero under Windows and it is very good, as is K3B. They both offer options that Graveman doesn't however I've found that I don't need most of those options and for general CD burning, Graveman is much more straighforward and to the point.
cs-cam: did you install graveman from source or did you find an rpm with mp3 enabled somewhere?
Installed it from the Arch Linux repo Came with MP3 support built-in.
As I said in my post, sox is fine, it's graveman that needs mp3 support added in.
so? and why do the graveman people write in their FAQ, that sox is the problem in fc?
my output of sox -h is:
[h@h ~]$ sox --h
sox: invalid option -- -

its the original package, and i dont see support for mp3, sorry.
you wrote, that you got the package 'sox' from yjl-repo. so you have a sox with mp3 support. dont you mean, that this is the reason, that graveman can burn mp3s on your box?
I tried graveman and it will not recognize mp3 files on my system. Sox is only part of the equasion.
I uninstalled it a couple of days ago so I can't run the command again, but 'graveman -V' will tell you which formats are supported.
Anyway, the main reason why I'd like to be rid of k3b (which works great BTW) is that I can't fiure out how to get it to stop loading artsd for sound events. I've turned off all sound events, but even so it plays a sound when I try to close an unsaved cd-collection. As a result I'm forced to kill artsd as root !! to get audacity to work ... I can do it, but I find it rather annoying.
