Thought about it.....but hadn't gotten there yet. I may try
that....thanks. 'Not something I've had to play with....yet. ;)

It is very easy to do, first find the starting point of the movie by
playing the dvd with:

| mplayer dvd://1

Most likely track 1 is the movie. If it is not, increase the number
until you find it. Now run:

| mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile <file_name> dvd://1

Substitute the number 1 if it is not the right track.
