Okay - total noob warning!

I'm just looking for a really easy way to take individual audio tracks from a cd, overlap each track at the start/beginning while fading them in/out, index the tracks and burn to cdr.

I'm sure this is real basic stuff. I have Garageband of course but I'm no mixing engineer and it doesn't feel like it's the right software - if it is could someone give me a starter as to how it's done? Alternatively is there some other software i could use?
Any help much appreciated...
