Yeah, that's the version I have. Near as I can tell you MIGHT be able to just "drag and drop" MP3 files to Nero on an audio CD format, I don't because the time it takes to decode the MP3 is longer than it takes to write the CD, and I end up with buffer problems.
SOME newer CD players will play an audio CD encoded with MP3's, but they're not very common, usefull sometimes as you can fit roughly 10x the ammount of music on a CD that way, but if you want to be able to play the MP3's on any CD player, you'll want to write them in CD audio format.
In Nero, when you open it up, you should get a window, on the left side is a column of the differant formats you can burn the CD in. You'll want to select "CD Audio" I would leave most of the other options as the default, it does have a very good online help system though, explaining what all the differant options do.
my god, what am I still doing up... oh, right, I got in at 0400 yesterday morning and slept until noon...
