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.

Yeah, i am not surprised that somone else mentioned it. Like i said before, this was the first time i have had to change the player's settings to have it not cut the video from its sides. But hey, as long as it works with the other settings, i am not complaining. I actually learned something about my dvd players settings by doing that, as well.
But I was worried there for a while. The AUDIO_TS directory on my hard disk is empty. All sound seems to be agglutinated to the main VOBs. Is it because it is useful only for secondary languages ?
Also, I started to play around with a DVD that contains multi-languages. As I ripped two audio tracks, both tracks are conspicuously unequal in length. I would have thought that both tracks would be of the same length. Any hint on the process at work here ?
PS to Steel_J: Thanks for the reply on mplex and tcmplex. But I used another box which uses Linux from Scratch and an updated copy of mplex while my Mandrake 9.2 seems to have problems with it.
PPS to Steel_J: Keep hanging on, man. Be happy with your new life.

AUDIO_TS folders should never contain anything for DVD-Videos - they are only included to help hardware compatibility (some DVD players refuse to play if the AUDIO_TS folder is not present.) It is used for AOB files on DVD-Audio discs ( a very different animal than DVD-video).

Only you and I will get that one!!!,
I didn't try you bash script, though. My DVD unit is on one machine but without disk space; my LFS machine has enough disk space but scattered throughout different partitions. So I'm swaping files around a lot. I'll need a few $$$ and time to fix my setup. And I'll use sub-titles with OCR soon (/me like japanese movies).
I'll tell you what I accomplished in the near future.
# Run this script in the working directory that your ripped VOB files are stored
# If you use this program and like it please let me know, or if you modify it please email me a copy
# Thank you and Happy Ripping
