First, use ALSA (and its OSS emulation). Here, with a 700 MHz iBook,
DVD playback is almost fine : sound is OK and the image seems to jump
every minute but it is hardly noticeable. I think that you should get
a smooth playback with the additional 100 MHz.

And make sure you really enable the DMA : echo using_dma:1 >
/proc/ide/hdb/settings, sometimes it is disabled without any
reason. Keep Xine, it is the best for DVD. For DivX, use mplayer.

Remove your .xine, default settings are fine.
What X server do you use ?
