[ALUG] Ripping HD-DVD disks to XVID

I have recently bought some HD-DVD disks as they're getting very cheap
now that HD-DVD has been killed off in favour of Blu-Ray.
I have an HD capable TV with an XVID capable DVD player built into it.
And I have an HD-DVD reader (& DVD writer) to plug into my PC. At the
moment I haven't connected it up because it's SATA based and I've run
out of SATA connectors so some juggling is going to be required (or I
can stick it into a Windows PC).
So, before I go too far, does anyone have any hints as to how I can rip
HD-DVD content and convert it into XVID to burn back to a DVD? I want to
basically get a full DVD in MPEG4 format from an HD-DVD.
Will I even be able to read the HD-DVD in Linux? (My desktop is Ubuntu
I don't have any other HD-DVD player so buying the disks was a bit of a
gamble really :-)
