A good starting point would be the readme.txt of a/demudi music distroit is on the wiki
well start to try to understand jack audio server its the main pieceof a pro-audio linux box
its very simple to work with qjackctl (jack control)
to record multitrack the best option is ardour. You can plug effectswith lapsca (like vst for linux)
to have realtime effects creox or jack-rack

no prob with dvd/cd
try the agnula live cd to see if everything works. Have to say that isa very stripped down version of this distro. Doesn't includes therealtime kernel.
