    Well, finally bit the bullet and got Mandrake 9.1 (KDE) installed on me laptop (PIII 60/128mb/12Gb/DVD etc.).

    What application can I use to view DVD's on this beast?

    My own favourite is Xine. You can also use MPlayer, Ogle, Kplayer, Totem.

    You might find you need to install a library called libdvdcss as most dvds are encrypted sort of thing

    Mandrake 9.1 comes with Xine I believe?

    DVD

    Groovy! Where can I find this libdvdcss you speak of?

    I tried Xine and it told me to bog off but probably because I don't have this oojamawhatsit.tar.gz.zzzzzz you mention.

    MaverickUK, you might find the Penguin Liberation Front useful for Mandrake rpms that aren't included with the distro.
