Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I did that. All I see is cdrom device, file format, executable, command line, cgi path (for id3 lookup) and thats it. nothing under the proxy/misc tabs. The only thing I see resembling a file dir is the encoder exe /usr/bin/oggenc
i'm using version 2.96, but hopefully this will help you out. open up grip and click the config tab. click on the rip tab and look in the text box with the label "Rip file format". that's where i specified a target directory for the ripped files. then click the mp3 tab and look in the text box labeled "MP3 file format". that's where i specified the target directory for encoded mp3/ogg files. the default locations should be in your home directory, but i don't remember what that is since i haven't used the defaults for grip in about a couple of years. anyway, can you post what it says on both those lines? that way if you still have trouble deciphering it, someone can help you decipher it for you.
grip is nice, but the one thing i don't like about it is the reliance on the cddb database for naming tracks. I use ripperX for my cd ripping jobs since it allows me to manually name tracks. I can still use the cddb database for naming tracks if want to though.
Ok, I got it. The version I am using doesn't have any kind of an MP3 tab, it has M3U which I never heard of. I just assumed this was the place and changed it to somewhere I am familiar with. It was just so cryptic having those variables in there, it didn't look like a pathname to me. It's changed now, but it was something /mp3/%A-%d.m3u. m3u is new on me...
I actually found a post similar to mine at the Grip userforum, but the dude after asking the question responded to it hisself with "never mind, I figured it out."
interesting that it uses .m3u since that's just a playlist file extension...
edit: nevermind, there's a playlist generator in options that's where the .m3u is at.
anyway, downloaded and installed grip 3.0.7 and while it does indeed let you manually name each track, it seems to forget the case of what i've typed in.
if type in for Artist Name, "South Park", and the Track Title, "Kyle's Mom Is A B*tch", i would expect the filename to be "South Park - Kyle's Mom Is A B*tch.mp3" and not "south park - kyle's mom is a b*tch.mp3". am i missing something here?
