DvdShrink 3.2 from Mr Bass works, however only for
nonencrypted ones.  Have not learned how to use DVD43
with wine in Linux to help this case.  For all other
cases, try DVDFabDecrypter

You will need to rip the movie first to hard disk and
then use Shrink to make an iso and burn with K3B or
growisofs from command line.  It could work, I have
not tested for the past year.  IT worked with FC5 Test
2 on a machine I ran for testing, have not tried

another copy.
