try mplayer with the kplayer frontend. Download all the plugins for mplayer such as libdvdread and libdvdcss and such. I use it for encoding/ripping and playing, works great and it's free. Just use your favorite portage app (yum, apt-get, urpmi, etc...) to get it.

Xine is another good one. You can use totem or kaffeine as a frontend. you will also need libdvdcss to play encrypted dvds.

Xine or Kaffeine are the 2 i recommend as mplayer can be more then a pain in the butt to get compiled and working properly. IIRC though RH comes (thus WB too) with some built in movie programs. been a while since i looked at my RH install, but i could of swore there was something that comes with the base GUI install of RH that plays DVDs if you have the proper codexs.
