I am thinking of purchasing a DVD rom drive as the are so cheap and am wondering if I will also need to purchase a mpg decoder card as well. I have a 64Mb GeForce2 MX-400 graphics card and I have no idea if it has any sort of mpg assistance built in. My computer has 256MB of 133mhz RAM and a Duron 1000 CPU.

you're system is powerfull enough for a software decoder. an mpeg card is nice but it costs.

Your system will run DVD fine with just the software - you've got a better spec'd video card and CPU than me, and I can run DVDs fine on mine, so you should be sweet.
