DVD Authoring help needed

Mr_RoseMr_Rose 83 Blue Ridge Protects the HolyRegistered User regular
OK, I have a bunch of .mp4 files which I need to turn into a DVD that will play in a generic home player, ideally with menus and stuff.

What is the easiest/quickest route to this destination, bearing in mind that I have minimal experience and no software?

    Not that this is the only solution, but do you have a Mac? iMovie/iDVD does this with ease. If not, do you know of someone with a Mac? This would literally take under an hour to do (minus burning time.)

    No Macs, sorry.

    Update: What I've now got (executive override, not my decision) is Nero 9, so if people know about that, that would be great.

    I have managed to arrange the available samples into the correct order in a Nero project and extract the three languages to separate audio files.

    Now I need to put the video onto the disc with the original language(s) and have the three translations selectable by menu.

    Edit: It occurs to me that I have neglected to add context; this is a recording of a conference that I have been tasked with producing a DVD of. There is no way all four hours are going to fit onto the disc thrice, so this audio/video separation is a must.

    Never done multitrack audio with it, but DVDFlick has always worked for me.
