Ok, any help! Then I possibly have something. First, you can create a red book 
audio CD which contains, simplified, wave-tracks.
If you want to make a audio cd out of mp3s you have to convert the mp3 file 
into a wav file (pcm) and create a audio-cd (formerly done 
by /usr/ports/sysutils/mkisofs but rigth now this tiny utility seems to have 
vanished???!)! ???

Another option is to create a data-CD, containig real mp3 files in ISO9660 
Filesystem. But this kind of CD needs to be played on special equipment like 
newer MP3 capable car radios and so on. HiFi CD Player can't play data CD's 
contents though many DVD-Players can replay data CDs with ISO9660-mp3 
structure on it.

Hope this helps a little bit, since you're using kde I'd suggest having a look 
at k3b (ports/sysutils/k3b), but it's not too easy getting it up and running 
(especially if you're not familar with FreeBSD)
