What I did was go through my CD library and rip the songs that I knew I loved. My CD library is about 4,800 CDs; this means I missed a lot because I couldn't place precisely what was on the compilation in hand. But a lot of music -- a great deal from the 70's, for instance -- simply was no longer of interest to me. I did this long ago on a PPC Mac mini with an 80 GB drive, and have simply moved the library from machine to machine as I upgraded.

Today I have an 8-core, 8GB multi-head mac with terabytes of storage and I could do the ripping a good deal faster, not to mention without impacting anything else I was doing... maybe someday I will. But its a big job. I don't buy from the itunes store, and won't, until or unless they completely drop the DRM. As far as I'm concerned, they might as well not even be there.
