    Do a search of the forums here, there's one called forty-two that's somewhat easy... by far the easiest one, anyway. one-step ripping. installation is somewhat complicated, but don't be afraid of it, you'll be learning something about UNIX while you do it-- anyway it's not very difficult...

    yep, just installed the new version of forty-two, installation is much easier. Still doesn't work for me (it seems to be rather hit-or-miss), but at least i didn't have to monkey with it for hours to know that...

    And just how much disk space are you going to need for all your DVDs?

    Also, what happens if the drive dies. You've lost all your movies if you've gotten rid of the DVDs.

    And if you're ripping DVDs you've rented, well I hope they catch you. Since people who steal DVD content is what causes all the bull**** of copyprotection and such that the rest of us have to put up with.
