That's what I did before I built my myth box.  Then I built said myth box, 
and didn't have any CDs left to rip - until I suffered hard drive 
corruption due to a FreeBSD->Linux migration.  (Grrr...) So I had to 
re-rip A-L of my CDs.  I tried myth, but I found running 4 boxes with Grip 
to be much faster for me.  Like you said, insert, wait for eject, put in 
next CD.  Just had to make sure that all of the ripping boxes the same 
settings for filename conventions, etc...

Once that was done, brought it all back into Myth, and watched for bad 
tags.  I then used EasyTag to fix the crapped-out ones...
