use grip to rip your cds to the hard drive. should've came with your distro. then you can use a cd burning program to make custom cds. some cd burning programs are xcdroast, gnome toaster, k3b. you'll need the lame libraries for encoding and decoding mp3s. if you go with xcdroast, you'll need to learn how to decode mp3 files to wav files to make audio cds.
basically, "lame --decode filename.mp3 filename.wav".
actually if all you want to do is to is immediately burn a cd after ripping, you don't need to have grip encode an mp3 file, just store the ripped wav file to your hard drive and burn an audio cd from the wave files.
