There is no dumb question (at least yours
You need a DVD-ROM, a relatively recent video card or a DVD decoder card like a Sigma Hollywood serie and also a software like PowerDVD to play them.
HP7100 is crap!!! But I don't wanna give it up. I finally junked it and bought a YAMAHA 8424scsi. What a relief!

in that case, you will also need a computer to connect all these things. Actually, if you have a fast processor (450 and above) you don't need a decoder card. Finally, some video cards, like a lot of the ATI ones have hardware decoding so you don't need the decoder card in that case either.

You would also need some kind of electricity-generating medium to be able to power all these devices. And some kind of optical recognition hardware installed in your head to be able to see the images.
Sorry, had to take it to the next level.
I would say your best bet is to get one of Creative's (http://www.creative.com) DVD bundles, they come with a drive, a decoder card and software.

What are your specs aaddzz? Typically only software players will work on p2-400 and faster systems. PowerDVD works on my p2-450 just fine.
