video conversion tools on linux


hi folks, i'm getting my feet wet in linux (some previous experience in sunos and other regular unix boxes) and need some pointers.

one thing i'd like to do is audiov/video conversion. what sort of software is out there for converting iso/vob/etc to avi/mp4/etc and back? similarly, what is out there for iso/wav to mp3 and back?

i'm somewhat familiar with the winxp tools for doing this, but i tried googling but couldnt find websites dedicated to this much like videohelp.com or afterdawn.com ...
