How do I get all the songs i have in the Itunes library on 9.2 in the library of the osx. Burn a cd and take import them after restarting on osx? If so how do i burn the songs as mp3 on the cd? it only seems to be giving me the option to import about 2o songs each time, how do I tell it to burn them compressed? thanks for your time everybody!

There's a file in your home/documents/itunes folder called itunes library.

You can either copy your itunes library from 9 (in os 9's documents/itunes folder), or make one of them a shortcut to the other, then any changes you make while 9 or X will change the same file so you don't have to keep updating the library.

In 9, use command-M to make a shortcut, then drag it to the ~/documents/itunes/ folder in X (make sure the shortcut has the exact name as the file it's replacing - you'll have to rename it to get rid of "alias"). In X you can do the same, but I think the keyboard shortcut changed (I'm not at my mac so I can't tell you what it is), but you can hold down the option and command keys as you drag the file from the old location to the new one, and it will make a shortcut rather than copying it.
