Using XINE to play a DVD ISO Image?

Is there any way to possibly play a DVD ISO as if it was an actual
physical DVD using XINE?  I can mount the ISO easy enough.  For my test,
I did:

mount /workspace/Multimedia/ISO-Images/StarWars-Holiday-Special.iso /shared/ISO/I0 -t iso9660 -o loop, and it mounted okay.  However, when I try to play it in XINE (just clicking on the DVD button), I get this:

libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.9 for DVD access
libdvdread: Attempting to use
device /workspace/Multimedia/ISO-Images/StarWars-Holiday-Special.iso
mounted on /shared/ISO/I0 for CSS authentication
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO failed
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP failed
libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.

And just opening up the VIDEO_TS.VOB file directly brings up the menu
mpeg, but with nothing clickable.

Any ideas on how to play an ISO short of copying the entire file over to
a Windows box, mounting with Alcohol 120%, and playing using WinDVD?

The reason this is important to me is because I am in the process of
making video DVDs out of some old cartoons (such as my Mysterious Cities
of Gold collection, for example).  It looks like the full image is going
to be too big to fit on a single layer DVD-R, meaning that I can't test
them first using a DVD-RW.  And since there are no Double Layer DVD+RW
disks, I need to test them in ISO format to reduce the risk of blowing
$2.00 a pop on making DVD+R DL coasters.
