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.

Why would you go through the hassle of setting up something that is not well known instead of using a stable product such as Mplayer to view your favorite DVD's. Plus: "I found something somewhere ... how to make it work" w/o even a link to this something is helping neither your nor us to help you.
Sorry! I thought everyone knew css-auth / DeCSS. That is the code that resulted in that young lad in Norway being prosecuted. He was acquitted because the purpose of the DeCSS program was to enable someone to view a DVD they had bought in Linux. I thought it was the only way (at least that is what I read in Linux Format who said that it could enable Xine to play CSS-encoded DVDs).
everyone DOES know. but just like rock stars, having a court case brought against a piece of software does not make it good. DeCSS may be the most infamous, but it's pretty poor and has been superceded so so many times it's not worth even thinking about.

Thanks for the clarification, however you still didn't say what form the code is in, where you got it (if it's "procured" by means you don't want to mention, that's fine, but post up some files so we can see what they look like), if it's a tarball, rpm or what. There really isn't much info here to help us suggest what to do with this code you've procured. Further more, Boris and Chris (Neo and Acid) have suggested a better idea than trying to get that code to do anything, check out mplayer. The link is provided by Neo, but here it is again: www.mplayerhq.hu
