I want to take a folder full of mp3's, and merge it into an audiobook-file (for Ipod, don't remember the file format) with chapters for each file.
Is there a tool that will do this?

MP3 to iPod Audio Book Converter will do this for you, it's free and open source.
Here's how I've done it in my Mac ...
Placed all my *.mp3 files to a folder, and open Terminal to that folder .. making sure my mp3 files are in correct sequence audio1.mp3 audio2.mp3 and so on ...
cat *.mp3 > Bookname.mp3
Then I went to Itune and added that big MP3 file to my Library (Add to Library :))
When the Bookname.mp3 shows up under my Music, I right click on it, Get Info, Option and change the Music type to "AudioBook" type ...
That's it ..
