I seem to remember that some Linux app Played ISO images and maintained
the menus and all.  Oggle?  I cant remember but im sure that you could
search the Gossamer list for that name.

If you have disk space.. Go for it.  

For us who don't.   Lets figure out a way to rip the DVD to ISO and xvid
compress the video and maintain the menu and ISO structure  :)

I haven't tried this, but I can't see why it wouldn't work.

If you tell myth to use a different program to display the iso and have
that program mount the iso as needed.

This "program" could just be a shell script that mounts the iso and then
execs mplayer to play it.
