EAC is definitely one of the best audio rippers around. The best part is that it is essentially freeware. (I say "essentially" because the owner requests a postcard with a picture of your city for registration, but he does NOT use any registration codes and such.)
The link above was taken from EAC's "Links" page. It seem to be a pretty good guide to get you going. If you need more help or would like to see more guides, try going to:
and click on "links." You will be shown several links to sites dedicated to teaching people how to use and configure EAC for audio ripping. Good luck!
