Read the FAQ.

There are a handful of technical issues that you must understand before getting into downloading, converting, and burning to CD. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as giving a quick, tech-free guide which is why we've set the FAQ up.

I'll tell you the same thing I tell everyone who asks this question: take some time with the FAQ, read the entries, try the methods, and post back if you get stuck. It will take a few hours of tinkering and testing things out before you get it, but once you do, I promise you'll be glad you did. And we're here to help if you have problems along the way.

And if you are on Winblow$ then you might want to consider getting Nero Burning ROM as it can burn audio CDs straight from .FLAC/SHN without requiring 3rd party conversion software.

Might I also suggest that you start keeping track of your accquisitions at db.etree.org (http://db.etree.org) as well.
