transcode DVD copying and ripping command line tools
If you like command line tools (but not that much, that you want to use plain transcode ;), take a look at Christian Vogelsang's transcode tools.

German article about dvd::rip and transcode
The April 2002 issue of the german LinuxUser magazine contains an article about transcode and dvd::rip I've written. It covers the complete software installation procedure and the usage of the standard dvd::rip mode. The May issue also had an extensive dvd::rip cluster mode report, which unfortunately isn't available online.
