howdy all,

I have imovie 09 at the mo, but keep thinking that to edit video to the beat of a song would be easier using fce.

all thoughts welcome.

Imovie 09 has a beat marker tool. Go to view> snap to beats to make sure that "snap to the beat is enabled. kind of follow these steps.
1) Add background music. 2) Insert beat markers. 3) Tap out beats 4) then add your video clips. Warning, don't use automatic transitions or it will ignore beat markers.
