How long does iDVD take to burn a 2 hour movie for you? It has taken HOURS for it to just prepare to burn without actually starting the burning process yet, and my mac (2.4ghz 2GB) is only a month or so old. Is this normal?

The project I'm burning was two episodes of a TV show in .avi format with a song from iTunes that I added to the menu. I set it to "professional" quality.
