Well, for lack of a better ripper, I will stick with KAudioCreator.  They need 
to make a CDEX for Linux though :)

For some reason, I just had problems ripping that one CD.  I went into windows 
and ripped it fine.  Everything else has been ripping great in KDE.  Perhaps 
someone could tell me how to change the ripping quality for mp3's in 
KAudioCreator?  I have looked all over for a place to do it to no avail.  It 
seems to rip in 192, which is nearly CD quality, but I would like to play 
around with the quality a bit.  Thanks for the help.
