i still cannot get dvdbackup.c to compile.  also i checked the 
dvd-dreate page at sourceforge and it looks like there has been nill 
activity even on the mailing lists in over 6 months.  this project seems 

are there any other options for duplicating a dvd under linux?

also, why would rpmforge build an rpm that won't work with the latest 
versions of its dependencies (libdvdnav and/or libdvdread)?
