Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

just use a symlink with the "ln" command, nothing tricky there. you'd either completely recreate the single /mnt/dvd directory or each file in that directory. alternatively can you not tell the app to look somewhere else. progams like mplayer can easily accept an alternative location to look in.
You need to use soft links (aka symlinks), so you need the -s switch:
# ln -s /input/dir /output/dir

It shouldn't matter. If it doesn't play from one location, it won't play from another. It sounds like you haven't ripped the DVD properly. Make sure you have libdvdcss and libdvdread installed on your computer and re-rip it. DVD video is just Mpeg2, so you can play it with anything really.
DVD::RiP - www.exit1.org/dvdrip .....tried it once this afternoon. The transcoded file came out great....took 3hours to do a 2pass encode of a 50 minute vob file on my 1.6GHz machine. dunno if thats good or not....
