Alright, its somewhat of a Success Story and I've had a howto in place for the past year or so but it was totally outdated. I have now updated it to the latest version of acidrip, along with the basic installation of its dependencies which are Gtk2-Perl, libdvdread, Mplayer and others.
So for anyone who wants to install and check out acidrip
and having problems installing, maybe this howto will help you succeed in getting it to work.
You can view the howto here: http://www.trickykid.org/docs/acidrip-howto.html
