     Regarding the copying of old LPs onto CDs, one thing you might 
try before scanning in the LP cover is to look for it on the web. 
I've found a surprising number of album-covers via Google on various 
websites, and you can just download that image (.jpg usually) to your 
hard drive and then paste it into whatever software document you're 
using to produce the cover for the CD.
     Same for album notes.  I found a lot of liner notes (or at least 
notes pertaining to the recording) on websites.  Just save them to 
your hard drive and stick 'em on the CD you're making.
     I do all of this using FileMaker Pro 6.0 on my Mac G4, as it can 
contain graphics and text both, and i print it out in color and it 
looks pretty good.
