[RndTbl] Video DVD question

 The end result is I want to burn a video DVD I can throw in a console unit. 
Here is what I've done so far...

 I've obtained a sample video file from the net (an AVI I think). I ran a 
program called videotrans to translate into a VOB file. MPlayer plays them 

 Then I used a package called dvdauthor to take the VOB file and create a 
directory structure as well as the IFO and BUP files. It turns out I have to 
change the permissions of everything created by this package to 777 or I get 
a certain set of errors.

 Next I tried both k3b and (I think - this was over a month ago) growisofs 
separately to see if anything will burn. Apparently there were problems with 
the Fedora version of the cdrecord package so I updated it from the source. 
Both programs choke. The messages seem to be related to file names. I tried 
altering the names to what it said was missing to see if it would help. No 

 Am I close? If so, what am I missing? Is there a better way of doing this?
