Ok, this definitely makes sense - now comes the "howto" question > can
you recommend software in which to do this? (As stated, I am a novice, I
am sure I can figure out/read the manual on how to do it, but what
application would be the best fit for the job?)

I completely agree - I have all of this music either in CD or MP3
format, backed up - After switching to Linux I did R&D on lossless
formats and whatnot, and ripped all of them into Ogg Vorbis - the
problem is more so the time spent doing it, rather than the actual
files. My problem is that I have a 500Gig HDD, with only the standard
partitioning (I know, stupid, but I didn't know better or the most
effective way at the time - not that I do now either, but at least I
know I need another one)

Thanks for your help Steve,
