need to compress an .mpg to .avi


Hello
I know this might sound like a dumb question but I been trying for a couple of days now to compress a couple of mpg files I have to simple divx and I couldnt find any tutorial or nothing. everythings related to converting dvds to divx
so, the question is, how the hell do I do it?????
I tried konverter but I always throws some error, I have mencoder installed but it keeps asking for the /home/me/mplayer/mencoder file witch I dont have and dont know how to create

thanks

my program, http://acidrip.sf.net can use mencoder to do this for you (i know it say's it's a DVD ripper, but it can also accept file input) but the mencoder interface is also simple, i don't know what command you're using for mencoder, but i'd think that what you think is an error, is actually not and you're reading the wrong lines. if you wish to persist using mencoder, try this:
Code:
mencoder input_file.mpg -oac mp3lame -lameopts abr:br=128 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:vm4v:vbitrate=800 -o output_file.avi
this will enocde a divx5 / mp3 avi file for you, at 800kbps for video 128kbps stereo audio.
