Is there a prog i can use to drag and drop mp3s that will convert them to wav to make audio cds for me? manually converting them in console is a hell of alotta trouble and takes up too much time...

A try. Alternatively, Eroaster, XCDRoast, GTKCombust should all work as well.

Oh, and I almost forgot, Arson.

One last excellent CLI app is at:

When I try to get cdcopy to convert the files to wav for an audio cd, it says "mpg123 command not found"
what am i supposed to do about that?
And since I am posting, i would also like to know why i cant install rpm packages...it goes thru the dependencies and it gets to reading system state and then closes the installer.

I prefer the command line as it definitely gives a much better indicator of errors. So try using the command line to install your RPM's and then post up any errors:
rpm -ivh filename.rpm
Where filename is the file that is to be installed (be sure you are in the correct directory containing the file ).

Cool

GUI? Why? Go straight to the program with the command line.

# CD burning info
Is it configured and what is the device? Command this to find out:
cdrecord -scanbus

but then again if you make aliases for those commands it almost could be easier to use the CLI.

That's correct, but to get an error to the folks helping you, it's gotta be the best/easiest way

Didn't you mean "only way"?

Which works assuming you are at a point on your system where you have everything working correctly and efficiently and do not plan on adding more. Also, if you are connected to a network, it's probably a good idea to at the very least log some of that activity

Cool
