ripping CD's to WAV ?

I need a program that can rip CD's directly into WAV files onto my hard drive, I dont care about album info and I dont want the songs converted to ogg or mp3, I'm just wondering what I should use (the easier the better)

(Yes I know how huge WAV's are)

Try Audacity Very flexible, and very accomodating in terms of file format conversions -- J.W.

isnt there some comman line tool? a GUI tool is too extravigant, and although this program looks cool, it does way more than what I need right now.

cdparanoia. Just use the command
cdparanoia $TRACK-NUMBER
where $TRACK-NUMBER is the number of the track you want to rip.
Lame can convert that into mp3

To rip audio CD's into plain .wav files, I use kaudiocreator. It's easy to use and gives a great sound quality to the files.
