I'm sure there are 20 ways to do it... Something like this might work:
for a in *.vob; do mplayer $a -ao pcm:waveheader:file=$a.wav -vo null; done
You also may want to look at the -dumpaudio and -dumpfile options of
mplayer if you want the original format audio from your DVD instead of
converting it to WAV files...
