How to convert an avi file to a DVD file recognizable by a DVD player

Beyond X

I have a set of avi files (eleven independent episodes) that I can play
with Windows Media Player, for example, by manually selecting using
Windows Explorer. Now I want to play them on TV screen via a DVD player
by selecting an item on screen.
Obviously I first need to convert the avi files to a format recognizable
by the DVD player. When I inspect commercial movie DVDs with Windows
Explorer, I see a single movie is divided into several pieces of files
of .BUP, .INF, and several .VOBs. I suppose those divisions are needed
to organize the content files and to play the whole in order. How can I
divide/convert an AVI file to such a set of DVD files? When there are
more than one independent AVI file like my case, how should those
subfiles (.BUP, .INF, .VOB) be organized? Can it be done automatically
with a particular software?
Your guide will be appreciated.

The .vob's on a dvd are essentially renamed Mpeg2's. The rest is
basically structure required by the DVD specification.

AVI's (Audio-Video Interleave)can technically be almost anything but are
usually these days an Xvid or DivX implementation of Mpeg4. To make a
DVD, the AVI's have to be converted and structured accordingly.

The so-simple-even-a three-year-old-can-do-it-no-brainer method: get
hold of a copy of ConvertXtoDVD by VSO software
