Just a note for all us Linux users out there... This same method works well with the Linux 'equivalent' of the software. I used XMMS to output WAV files and SoundConverter to encode them to mp3 to play on my mp3 player! The method is almost identical and works great. Thanks for the tips. Casey p.s. - the OpenSPC plugin for XMMS works great for me on my IBM Thinkpad A22e with Ubuntu Dapper.
