In the case that I get an Ipod for Christmas, just how easy/difficult is it to put
one's cd library on ? I think I have the needed equipment, a PC with CD player installed.
Any one able to make it a few simple steps? Sorry if someone already did here and I missed it
or lost it.

Hi Kay, and all . . .

I think your posting to the DJML about your iPod is as good an endorsement 
for embracing the technology which is carrying us into the future of music 
as I could wish for.

New young listmate, Marc Bolin, also is a walking testament to the fact that 
we'd better get our CD files into mp3s and on to the internet and the sooner 
the better!

Time's a-wastin' -- saddle up and move 'em out!
