Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks to schneidz and tommcd for the pointers. I will look into devede.
Does anyone know how to do it with only ffmpeg, and the standard dvd+rw-tools package? (this is just a one-shot job. I'd rather not install lots of software if I can do it with a simple tool and a good recipe)
A bit more info if it helps: the original video is H264 (video) and AAC (audio)
I never tried this, but as far as I know, K3B with all the necessary stuff under the hood (ffmpeg, transcode, vcdimager) can do this in a few clicks.
Ah, I didn't think about K3B since I have not installed the KDE series. Having a quick look at their web site, I didn't find info regarding how to make a movie DVD (that can be played in a regular DVD player). Maybe I should look further into it. Thanks for the tip.
get ffmpeg and dvdauthor packages from slackbuild/alien repository, plain/vanilla Slackware dones't have them. You need ffmpeg to break down and convert mp4/avi files to (NTSC-DVD) vob, then using dvdauthor to build the dvd structure tree, and using mkisofs to build a dvd images, before using isoinfo to check it, last you use dvdrtools burn its to dvds.
This is what I was looking for. I will try this recipe. First step is to get and build dvdauthor (I just had a look to AlienBob's repository, but his dvdauthor package is for 12.2. Maybe a bit too old, but I guess there is no longer much interest in producing regular DVDs...)
Thanks also to glorsplitz for the dvdauthor info. My original video is mpeg4 (h264, aac) so I guess I have to convert it first to mpeg2 with ffmpeg.
I appreciated number22's link with some DVD-Video layout info. It's more than I need, but it has shed some light on all these mysterious .VOB, .BUP and other files.
I will mark the thread solved, and will come back to you with more precise ffmpeg or dvdauthor questions if needed.
