Tried dvd::rip.  Seems to be working, though it's slow on my computer, and the program layout is a little confusing.  I remember using acidrip some years ago, and liked it then.  I just installed it on my computer, along with lsdvd, and will try it tomorrow. 
The layout of Thoggen is good, but the fact that it only supports conversion to ogv is a little annoying.

Unfortunately, the documentation link that you provided doesn't seem to be of any help, because when I start dvd::rip, I get the following display, so how do I get dvd::rip to read the contents of a DVD?

And according to the documentation for Handbrake, it is NOT a ripper.

Go to "File" and select "New Project".

Locator,

Thanks for trying out dvdrip and handbrake but it is really NOT VectorLinux's responsibilities to prepare or update documentation for other applications. You have to refer to the author of the application for it. Sorry I cannot help you much here...

I think k9copy, which was already mentioned previously is the better pick for ease of use. Though many of the others seem rather simple as well.
 The VectorLinux community, nor the Developers are responsible for teaching you how to use these applications or "rip" a dvd. Each application has it's own web sight and documentation and probably a bit more. If that is not enough, there are TONS of other web sites out there that do provide such information.

If an application does not work as it is intended to, please feel free to report it here on the forums for the packagers and developers to take a look at. If you're looking to be schooled on how to rip a DVD or any other medium, maybe the lounge is a good place to try your luck, or some other web sites.

This thread has offered many good replies with information which requires you to read in some cases. Go read!

Additionally,
                 I will probably lock this thread to save the helping community from headaches which aren't necessary. I advise to travel wisely and respectable.

Cheers...
