Thanks for all the replies!

This is to rip the movies my kids would destroy, so I don't need complete
DVD images./iso's.  I would rather have something smaller.  I'll still have
the discs if I want the extras.  The only thing I can imagine I would still
want is 5.1 surround sound.

Thoggen looks pretty good.  I'm sure there's even a plug for WMP10/11for ogg

However, Thoggen looks to be at 0.6, and the one available in the repos is
at .4 for Dapper.  Is there a way to install it so that package manager can
do dependencies/keep track of it?

Thanks again!
