Actually, I was saying to use this for those who think EAC/Lame is hard to
setup or use, and this config will be way better than what they had been
using (except for CDex). I myself did upgrade to that later version and
same settings that you mentioned, but I know the program.

Myden's site is great for someone starting out with EAC like the person
asking in this thread who didn't get beyond the .wav files being extracted.
