Hello, Ronny :)
A sublimely simple answer, but exactly what the doctor ordered, none the
less :)  I guess it shouldn't be to suprising that there might be issues
with cdparanoia, seeing as it doesn't appear to be under active
development.  (If I am mistaken, I do apologize.  The project page on
freshmeat appears to have been updated in 2002, and cdparanoia's home
page leads me to believe the same)

Anyway, thanks, Ronny.  I am now able to rip cd's again with my USB2
external CDRW drive :)

Have a Great Day :)
