Exact copy:

mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile mydvd.dump dvd://1

Of course, you may want to rip another title than dvd://1. lsdvd tells
you which title is the longest one.

For encoding to DivX, Xvid, H.264... you can use mencoder or ffmpeg.
Which one is largely a amtter of personal taste, but there are some
technical differences as well. Don't ask  me which one, though. I am
just getting started as well (and therefore like ffmpeg for its easier
command line syntax).
