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.

How may I create an image using k3b. Its my first time and I just want to create an image so it doesn't convert all the songs to wav's everytime I burn a CD(Multiple copy's not all at once, on today and another maby tomorow etc..).
You can't make an .iso from an audio CD. You may be confused by Nero's behaviour. On windows, if you look carefully, Nero Burning Rom makes an .nrg image, not an iso, from music files (or videos). This is nero's own image format that they made specifically for this sort of thing. Since k3b doesn't have its own image format and only supports making .iso images, which you cannot make from an audio CD, it just applies any options you specified for your music, like normalising it, and puts all your music files into a new directory so you can burn them manually to a real CD when you want to.
You can create an iso of an audio cd. Using mkisofs you can create a filesystem with the 'wav' files in it, burn that iso to a CD, plop it in a car stereo that only plays audio CD's (not mp3's etc.) and it will play this music.
Just to clarify, it certainly can be done; just not using these mentioned graphical frontends that don't understand what you are trying to do.
