Did you mean 23.97 (NTSC 3:2 pulldown converted FILM) fps? That
is rather uncommon - most material I have seen is 29.97fps.
NTSC video is 29.97 (30000/1001 actually ;))
I've done quite a bit of conversion from MPEG2 to DIVX (using the
mpeg4ip.sourceforge.net divx encoder) and it's not too hard (slow
I have taken NTSC (29.97fps) video (movies from www.archive.org for
example) and converted to Divx (divxenc). If that is what you want to
do I believe I can help with pointers to the tools you'll need and
some sample scripts that I use as templates.

Oh, are you trying to convert from NTSC to PAL frame rates?
That I do not know how to do - I believe it requires some very
expensive equipment. Also the audio needs to be converted and
I am not sure that can be done easily without altering the pitch.
