Woo. I got some XingDVD tips from the ultracool Marcus. For the benefit of all you Wine alcoholics out there, here they are:

- Make sure you have r/w access to /dev/sgX (where the SCSI DVD ROM is attached).
- Start X in either 8 or 15 bit Mode.
- Start Xing with:
wine XingDVD.exe -desktop 800x600
- Press Play.

In other news, saw X-Men this weekend, and I'd like to say it completely rocks. The characters, plot, and even overall "feel" of the film are faithful to the comics. Plus it's just plain good entertainment. If you haven't seen it yet (and it's showing in your area, sorry my European friends :) GO!
