I can!

When i insert a audiocd i get 4 options: Store with K3b, Play with
KsCD, Rip with KaudioCreator and Open Audio CD in Dolphin. Choosing
open with Dolphin the CD opens with Dolphin and i can see several
folders i can copy to. Flac, Mp3, Ogg Vorbis, Wav, CDA etc.
I'm running Jaunty with KDE 4.3.1 and several other PPA so i'm not
sure where my options coming from.
