Josh Boyd said of using my old G3 iMac to encode video for DVD:

   Well, I defer to your greater experience/knowledge. I only know that
Apple's iDVD fails to install on a G3-equipped Apple -- but then, they
have pretty high standards for us to live up to. :7)
   What software could I use to ready some movies & pictures under OS X
for burning to a DVD (and then burn it)?
   Thanks again.
P.S. These days, a computer with one 600 MHz CPU -- especially an Apple
-- seems to qualify as a rescue.
