Assuming you have the tools already installed, save the script into a
file (say makedvd.sh)

-------------------cut ----------------------
mkfifo aud0
mkfifo vid0
mkfifo dvdmpg

mpeg2desc -a0 < $1 > aud0 &
mpeg2desc -v0 < $1 > vid0 &
mplex -f 8 -V -o dvdmpg aud0 vid0 &
dvdauthor -o $2 -f dvdmpg
dvdauthor -o $2 -T

rm aud0
rm vid0
rm dvdmpg
-------------------cut ----------------------

Make sure the file is marked as executable and then run:

./makedvd.sh /path_to/input.mpg /path_to/output.vob

and you *should* get a DVD file at the end of it. Replace
input/ouput/path for the actual filenames you have.
