I have a few questions about DVD(-ROM):
-Does the computer use the same protocol for communicating with the CD-ROM and the DVD-ROM? (ATAPI) (if yes, I guess linux will support any DVD drive?)

-Can a DVD data disc have a region?

-Can I rip any DVD (video disc) with any region on a region 2 player?

-Any good utilities for this on linux? (DVD -> mpeg)

-Any recommendations when I'm going to buy a DVD-ROM? (would be nice with TV-out, region free)

-Are all DVD-decoder cards (such as the one from creative) supported by linux?

-Will I need one on my k6-2 500?

Thank you!
