I use mencoder (part of mplayer) for that. You can do something like

mencoder dvd://<track_num> -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=1 -oac copy
-o /dev/null
mencoder dvd://<track_num> -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:mbd=2:trell:vpass=2
-oac copy -o output.avi

where "track_num" is the track number you want to encode. For you it is most
likely "1". You can find out the track number by playing the dvd with

mplayer dvd://<track_num>

Just increase the "track_num" by 1 until you find the right one.
