A really easy way to convert your audio files in Final Cut Pro is by using QuickTime Pro.  Since audio from CDs has a sample rate of 44.1 kHz, and most DV projects and DVDs have an audio sample rate of 48 kHz, the audio files will have to be converted before you output to tape or DVD.  It's better to convert the sample rate before you import the the CD audio file.

Remember, you have to have the Pro version of QuickTime installed on your computer; but fortunately, as long as you have Final Cut Pro installed, it will automatically upgrade your version of QuickTime to QuickTime Pro.

First, open the file in QuickTime Pro.  From the File Menu, choose Export.  From the Export drop-down menu, choose AIFF.

Click the Options button to open the Sound Settings window.  Change the rate to 48.000 and leave the Sample Size at 16.

Choose the location for the converted file.  This should be the same location as the other project files.  Click OK, and you're finished!
