Getting Started With CD/DVD copying/editing on linux

htHi;

I got a dvd/cd reader, burner.

I don't know anything about dvd/cd copying or editing.

I have had good results so far, but I am running into a wall.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a good forum where I could learn the ropes of burning/copying dvds on linux?

Right now my current problem is I want to copy a dvd that is close to 8 gigs, but I want to fit it on dvd that holds just under 5 gigs.

I figure I either have to trim the bonus features out or compress it in some way.

Beyond that I am a total clueless newbie.  I am looking to get started, hopefully without the need for nightschool or install windows :)

Thanks

Steve

Hi

I try to give you some clues.

For burnig dvds and cds in linux you can use k3b soft here is link http://librenix.com/?inode=3547 . It is very easy to use as I know from my experience.
The problem with burning 8 gigs DVD to 5 gigs can be solved with DVD shring witch runs on windows platform so you need to use wine to run this soft on linux.

hope you get some clues.

"DVD shring" or "DVD shrink"?

Is it a compression program?

I got the k3b *.img file shrunk and burned to a dvd.

I turned out to be encrypted so I couldn't play it in xine, but my question was how to shrink the thing so the points are yours.

The doom site seems to have good intro material on it.

I am going to read that to get my bearings and investigate other tools

Thanks
