You need to add the Marillat unofficial Debian multimedia package repositories to your /etc/apt/sources.list. I got the following instructions from ubuntuguide.org - adding extra package repositories.

1. Open a root terminal (menu Applications -> System Tools) and do: gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

2. Scroll to the end of the file and paste the following:

deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat stable main
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat unstable main
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat testing main

Then save the file and exit gedit.

3. While still in the root terminal, do the following commands:

# gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net --recv-keys 1F41B907
# gpg --armor --export 1F41B907 | sudo apt-key add -
# apt-get update
# apt-get install libdvdcss2

You may want to run apt-get with the -s flag to simulate the installation first:
ie. apt-get -s install libdvdcss2
