avi files...

Is there any way to reduce quality just slightly or cut minutes off of avi files in linux? I have a couple of avi files that are just a MB or so too big for a CD and it's rather annoying.

If you install the transcode package, it includes several avi utilities, including avisplit. You can trim the beginning and/or end by time/framecode or split the file by size to fit your media.
