    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Myself, I use ffmpeg to convert the avi files to mpeg2 ntsc-dvd format (you can convert to PAL if you prefer), and then use a Windows DVD authoring tool in Wine (TMPGenc DVD Author) to create the VIDEO_TS / VOB data files required to burn onto a dvd. Then I use K3b to do the actual DVD burning. Works fine. Unfortunately, although there are Linux DVD authoring tools that can take the place of TMPGenc, they are clunky and difficult to use.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
