It would be awesome if a newbie could quickly and easily get DVD
playback working by following simple instructions in a HOWTO.
1) If the hardware is new, install and run 'regionset'.
2) Enable such and such source in sources.list, via synaptic.
3) Locate and install this and such list of packages.
4) Rent a DVD and watch a movie.

there was... I rarely need Java myself.
