You might find that your DVD player supports NTSC (especially if it can 
output RGB).  I'd guess that any DVDs you burn would be region 0 so they 
would play on any player.

I converted a WMV video to DVD using ffmpeg I think.  You might want to 
have a look at a combination of avidemux to turn the file into an MPEG2 
video, and then dvdauthor (I think there is a gui called kdvdauthor) to 
convert the MPEG2 video into a DVD.

Other than that, someone on the AfterDark forums suggested DVD Flick 
although being a Windows program it's hit and miss if it'll work with 
Wine.  DVD Flick it is Open Source supposedly though.
