See how it tracks are listed out of order? 2, 1, 3, 4? I want iTunes to sort the tracks in ascending order but I don't know how to make iTunes do this.

Sort by Track index

If you click on the "track number" column as explained in another answer, it will just change the order in which the tracks are displayed in iTunes; if you have problem with the order in which they are played, you should also check that all tracks have the same "Album Artists".

I found the trick here, and it solved the ordering issue I had on my iPod.
