Burning Audio CD's


Hey all, I am relatively new to linux, been using it for about a month or 2 now. I am using mandrake 9.1 and like it alot

Anyways, my question is this, I have figured out how to burn data cds (i think lol) but cannot burn audio cds. I have tried using various burning programs, and most just burn the song as an mp3 to the disk. I have tried using k3b to burn audio cds (hoping it will convert mp3 to cd audio on the fly) but I get the following

No CDRdao driver found
Please select one manually in device settings
For most current drives this would be generic-mmc
I/O error

Can someone explain to me how to fix this, or point me in the direction of burning software that can convert mp3 to cd audio on the fly?

Also, is anyone here running limewire? I can't seem to get it to run, suggestions?

there are 3 tabs at lower right, 1 is data, 2 is tracks, 3 is burn settings, drag them to second tab,not first, it will make them into audio tacks, not mp3's, wish I could explain it better, just be sure you are on the middle, second tab if you do not know if you are you probably arent, just play around.

not sure, never usd it, I know you can, you may need to go into preferences and modify command line entry using cdrecord --halp in terminal to find correct option.

chmod 777 limewire.bin
./limewire.bin

(all from command prompt inside the directory of the file)

if that fails you need to install the latest java

I got the installer to start running, but I get to unrecognized JVM specific options. Should I go get the new version of Java, and if so, which one?
