I'm working on just such a HOWTO, but I'm currently missing the first step: convert the AVI to MPEG-2. Maybe mencoder (part of mplayer) can help you there. I'm planning to do this step some time soon as well, so I'd be interested in hearing what you use. The rest is described at http://www.lemis.com/grog/HOWTO/dvdburn.html. Sorry about the format, which describes more the problems you'll find than how to do it; I'm working on a new description, but it's not finished yet.
