    then take that image file and burn it to a DVD on a PC that has a DVD
    burner? Can iDVD handle that?

    No, iDVD won't run without a DVD burner.

    I don't think it will let you install it without a super drive

    That's not _quite_ true as of iDVD 3.0.1. You can now run it without a
    SuperDrive, but it won't burn to anything but a SuperDrive. You can,
    however, move the project file to a Mac with a SuperDrive and burn
    there using iDVD.

    I haven't played with it enough to determine whether you can burn using
    other software to non-SuperDrives. My suspicion is that, with a fair
    amount of effort, you could. I know that you can take the MPEG-2s out
    of the project file and burn them to DVD-R using Toast 6 or cdrdao, but
    haven't worked out how to move the iDVD-created menu structure over as
    yet.

    My wife just got a new 12" PowerBook with the combo drive (not
    Superdrive). It has iDVD pre-installed, and I can launch and work with
    it.
