Sure, 2 avi's I know work with cat and mplayer, I'd assume mpg would be the same:
cat file1.avi file2.avi > bigfile.avi
mplayer -forceidx bigfile.avi

Cool

yeah thanks i did the cat but it didn't work for me but i didn't know that i had to use the mplayer mplayer -forceidx bigfile.avi

i wander if i incode the bigfile.avi to an mpg or whatever maby then i would not have to use -forceidx everytime?

it does not work it says that it is damaged
so i told konqueror to use the mplayer -forceidx command on the .avi filetypes
and it works even if the avi is not dammaged
havent tryed to combine the mpegs yet though
