Do you have libcss installed? You need that to play all commercial DVDs. But be warned, its illegal to use.

Try plf for plugins, apps etc for Mandrake
The d5d plugin works well for Xine, from memory you will also need libdecss-2
Setting plf as a source in urpmi will help with any dependancies, the instructions are on the site.
