    You need 2 basic things.
    1.) An encoder that will make a dvd compliant mpeg-2 video from your aiv/divx.
    2.) An authoring app that will allow you to use subs, as well as menus, chapters, transitions, etc.
    For #1, a lot of people use tmpgenc. I prefer Mainconcept, or Canopus Procoder. You can use QuEnc, it's free.
    For #2 get DVDLab Pro. There's nothing better (in it's price range).
