Try using Ogle DVD player. It's small and fast and it supports DVD menus. You can find Ogle at http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/groups/dvd/. There is also a RPM package for some distributions (RH, MDK).

To play encrypted (i.e. normal) DVDs you will probably need to have the libdvdcss package installed. AFAIR there are two versions - 1.x and 0.x which are incompatible. I've been using the 0.x with Xine with no problems, although I couldn't get the 1.x version working.

don't use 1.0 versions anyway, they're very slow and fail very often. teh makers maintain that they're better than the older ones, but everyone else knows that's not true. use libdvdread 0.9, libdvdcss 0.0.3
