   Simply assemble the session as you want it to be heard, with gaps where 
you want them.  Place markers with appropriate names in the 'CD Markers' 
line at the points where you want each 'track' to begin, then export the 
entire session as a 16-bit, 44.1khz WAV file, and select the option to 
produce a TOC or CUE file.  When you go to burn the CD, select the TOC or 
CUE file in your burner software, and it'll pull in the .WAV
