audio cd and mp3s of different volume levels, how to record

greetings all,
could someone please let me know how to achieve the following:
i have various mp3s that i want to burn on to a cd, some of them are loud enough (desirably) to go on and be played on the system, but there are some that have very low volume, so what i would like to do is if not the whole cd to be of the same level (loudness), then those "quiet" mp3s to be as loud as the ones i am happy with.
sorry for the confusions if the description is vague a little, but i hope it is clear enough ))
i came across the "mp3 gain" software that actually put some info in the tags, if i am not mistaken therefore bringing the volume level up, but would it be burned with the same volume? and another thing as far as i am concerned gain process simply normalize volume, therefore increases the amplitude so there are chances of audio actually clip, is that correct? i have also came across dynamic range compression process which i am not sure of...
is there an actual software that combines volume normlization and dynamic compression in one that adjust the mp3 volume?
cheerz in advance,
p.s i use nero to burn my audio cds

Nero & Normalization

Nero has the capacity to normalize your audio files and bring them to relatively the same range of loudness.

I would like to know if there is any freeware software that would do this.
