Yep, add the directory with you wav files in to the HD configuration
thing, clikc them in th righthand panel on the "layout tracks" window and
click add.

I found it easier to use gcdmaster though
http://cdrdao.sourceforge.net/gcdmaster/ but its a bit of a pain to
install. Lots of RPMs. It lets you arrange all the files one after another
on a timeline and add, remove and drag about track markers.

The RME drivers are good (at least for the hammerfall, I havent tried the
newer cards), but M-Audio also support linux, and they have a greater
range of cards.
