Scott, if it helps I've had luck in the past using VLC for joining/ 
transcoding DVD segments. Basically anything VLC can play, it also  
seems to be able to export. I used the Streaming/Export Wizard to take  
(unprotected) DVD content in 3 parts and export it to a single mp4  
(haven't used Ogg much but would be surprised if VLC didn't support  
it). Would then be easy (well easier) to slice up into the actual  
talks (I'd use QuickTime Pro here for simple slicing as I'm OSX).

Happy to help if it means you get on with other stuff, though  
downloading all that DVD data to me could be a pain. How many GB are  
we talking about? If it's on a server somewhere I'd be happy to give  
it a whirl.
