Ripping DVDs with Free Software!

Just today, a friend of mine needed a copy of a DVD that she could take around with her on a hard drive. So I thought, "well, I'll just take the disk image of it..."

But Apple's DVD player won't play DRM'd disk images, of course.

However! Here's a very nice howto for some very friendly software for Linux, Mac OS X, and BeOS (I know you've all got BeBoxes out there) that'll make video files from your DVDs, no sweat. Super-easy to use. Your mom could do it.

Thanks for the link, Cory Doctorow!
