Basic audio interface for Intel iMac

I do occasional audio recording with GarageBand. I just recently upgraded from a G4 tower to an Intel iMac w/Snow Leopard. I settled for analog audio in through the mic input on the G4 but I think I want to step up to digital input. I have an analog mixer, tube preamps, effects pedals, etc. so I don't need to have them in the audio interface. Midi I/O would also be nice but not necessary. What are my choices in a basic 2-channel Firewire(800)/USB(2.0) audio interface?

Linux On Aluminum iMacs: Does It Work?

Any one have experience running Ubuntu or another Linux on an aluminum iMac? (Aluminum keyboard, wireless mouse, 2.66 Core 2 Duo) What works? What doesn't? I'm not a Linux neophyte. I ran it on my desktop for about ten years, then moved to Apple after banging my head on wireless drivers. (Bought three successive cards that the "community" said worked. They didn't.) I don't mind editing scripts, but I want all my hardware to work immediately after an install or after I grab some supported packages. I'm through chasing around for unsupported code that some guy says works on his hardware. Is my Time Capsule going to be at all useful? (Posted this question on the Ubuntu forum and got only two rather unhelpful replies.)

iMac doesn't recognize most CDs as CDs.

My iMac spits out the vast majority of CDs you put in the drive. I'd rather not lug it to the store (out of warranty)... any known solutions for this madness? Sometimes I have to put the same CD in the drive 20 times until it's recognized as a CD. It never spits out DVDs. It's a 3 year old 24" iMac.
