I have some movies of my wedding in PAL format on DVD-R
I'd like to do two things:

1) Copy the PAL DVD and create a backup so I can lend out the backups to family instead of the original wedding DVD
2) I'd like to convert the PAL DVD to a NTSC DVD

I'm currently running Fedora Core I and I've tried using DVDRip and various other tools but they're apparently written to rip DVDs and convert the to (S)VCDs.

Can anyone help me out with some information on what tools ( and steps, if possible ) I must use in order to accomplish the two tasks above?
