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.

the thing is whenever we try to watch a dvd we get the mrl not found...no read write permissions. The nor mal xine error.
Now we can see vob files etc...when we look in /mnt/dvd.
I have compiled libdvdcss 2 or 3 times xine-check returns...
Please be patient, this script may take a while to run...

That walked me through enough that I could get it working. I had made the mistake of mounting the dvd drive. Once I got it setup in the way they outlined, I didn't need root permissions or anything to view dvds.
Well, I ran through that site, and that ended up getting dvd playback working for me. I did have to change an option or two through the xine settings GUI, just to point to my dvd drive. But nothing else comes to mind, so I'm not really sure what the problem could be. Sorry I can't be more help
