I recently got an mp3 player, and as I've mentioned earlier my computer knowledge is pretty limited. Does anyone know how to take songs off of CD format and make them into mp3 format so I can load them on to my player. I have Windows XP edition if that matters.

The process is called ripping a CD. You need software to do it, such as Apple's iTunes, MusicMatch or RealPlayer (there are tons of them, including many free ones). When you rip a CD it converts the files into mp3 files at a certain bit rate or quality. I recommend at least 128kbps for good quality, and 192kbps is better but the files are larger.

Check out or for ripping software.

The opposite of ripping is burning, where you take mp3 files and "burn" them to a CD so you can listen to them on a regular CD player. A lot of the programs will handle both.
