Hi,

The easiest way consists in changing the objects z-order with the PageUp and PageDown keys (see http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Z-Order.html). If you have only two objects and if you don't need to lock or hide one of them, it's probably the best solution.
But you can also use two layers, and add your circle on the bottom one (http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Layers.html).

Regards.

If you intend to do more than one, you might want to create a "template" for the Blank CD label, consistng of the inner and outer circles and perhaps some index lines. Use the "DVD cover" as a worked example. Place your template in the template directory. Thereafter, you will find it in he list of choices when you click on File->New.
