or you can cut to the chase and go here:
You don't want to use a CD, because all you'll get is a video CD (VCD I think) and they have pretty bad quality, and you can't fit a lot on it. Get yourself an internal DVD burner. If you have a desktop, install it there. If you use a laptop, get yourself an external housing with firewire/USB 2.0 (assuming your laptop has either firewire/USB 2.0 outputs. If not, you'll also need a USB 2.0 PCMCIA card bus). The drive itself shouldn't be more that $80, the housing another $50, and you should be able to get the PCMCIA for bout $20. These prices may be out of date. Then you can go to Cost-co and get hundreds of blank DVDs for something like $20ish.
good luck, and if you have any specific questions, feel free to PM me.
EDIT: Just realized you were asking about software too. You should be able to get the "home version" of Vegas, Pinnacle, and others for about $100. You can download trial versions, but I think some features are disabled.
I'm supposed to be making a movie for my H.S. French class. I don't think we were expected to have to buy anything except DVDs. All that stuff you're mentioning seems way too professional.

If you don't have a ton of RAM, importing video over USB might not work very well. (You won't know until you try, though, so experiment.)
It comes with XP. Your school might have it if you have MS computers.

Can you burn it straight into a DVD from that program or do you have to save it as a file first and use another program?
