The easiest softwares you'll want to use are:
DVD Santa will be the easiest, because it'll convert it from the mpg to the dvd in one step for you.
While WinAVI is the fastest conversion tool I believe out there, you'll have to do it in two stages. First, from mpg - avi. Then from avi - dvd. But, it's the fastest conversion tool I've used so far.
TIP: Make sure you have DVD-RW's available. It's so disturbing to read posts where people complain that they've wasted their cd's/dvd's. You can avoid that.
Also, converting from mpg to dvd can sometimes cause audio sync problems. Make sure you scan through the movie in various parts of it to make surre the voice is aligned with the mouth.
If your movie doesn't sync correctly, you'll have to seperate the sound from the video, then merge the two together using another tool.
