Creating the ogg is one thing, you will also want you collection
properly tagged. Rippers like grip and k3b can grab the track info for
a large number of CDs from the cddb database, but the quality varies
greatly, depending on the genre. For some CDs, the track info will be
fine; for others, you will want to tweak it. This is time consuming
and there is no way around. You want proper tags because programs like
muine, rhythmbox, and Amarok depend on it.
