I did a net install with a 2.4 kernel (was installing asterisk at the 
time which is also running nice). I imagine I can download a binary for 
lame. I was looking for an apt solution for the underlying components to 
make the web interface for a jukebox a no brainer if I released the web 

I'd like to make a web interface that handles ripping, burning, and 
playing audio. I want my wife or daughter to be able to drop a blank cd 
and make a cd to go for the car, or drop in a new cd and add it to the 
collection with a click. All the software exists, the key is to make it 
dead simple. The web interfaces I've seen aren't complete, some aren't 
even complete as far as playing media let alone ripping and burning.
