Ok people ... I found a work around ...
Just for the record Quicktime and WINE are not best friends - if you look at the link I posted in my prevoius post you will see there are a lot of issues with QT/WINE.
However, I found that if I open the DVD and go to the Video file folder and open Chapter one file folder and click on it VLC opens and I have video and sound!
I don't have the fancy frontend they designed but, it plays just the same! Why they designed the DVD to only be playable with Quicktime is beyond me and just stupid. Personally, it I am running a windows machine I don't want QT on it ... the program is pain. itunes is the only program I can think of that is cool.. just sayin
