There are all sorts of video editing option under Linux. The built-in
editor in Myth works well for cuts only, and there are many more
options up to and including Cinelerra, which is a full-blown non-
linear editor, with hardware requirements to match :-)

There are many options for this under Linux, and I really am working
on "Part 2" of VHS to DVD transfers, which of necessity includes how
to make a DVD. Authoring and burning DVDs on Linux is still at least
much art as science though.

I wasn't aware of that one, but for $15 it looks like a bargain.
Linux is fun to play with but I can't tell you how often when I just
want to "get it done" I turn to a Mac, not just for video stuff but
just about anything.
