For viewing video's, they advise to bypass cacheing for the cdrom/dvd, you can do this by addressing '/dev/cdrom' (maybe depends on distro). This should read the drive in 'raw' mode.
I have a 1.5G cpu with 256Mb ram and I can view dvd's just fine, better than in 'Windows' (big surprise).
As far as I'm concerned, most stuff coming out of 'Hollywood' these days is so boorish and uninspiring as to not be worth the trouble anyway.


centrino, ipw2200, libdvdcss, raw
