I want to make a (s)vcd in linux and i don't have a clue on how to do

I found a webpage that explained that using mjpeg tools you had to
extract the audio and video, then multiplex it , use vcdencoder and then
burn it with cdrdao.

The problem is that lav2wav and lav2yuv (in mjpeg tools) say that the
input movie is not in JPEG 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 format.

The movie is a plain popular DivX :-) so i tried using mencoder and lavc
with the mjpeg like this:

mencoder movie.avi -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mjpeg -oac copy -o

Apparently, the vcd format uses mpeg1 for video (which mencoder
supports) and mpeg 1 layer 2 for audio (which mencoder does not support)

Is there something i can do? Sorry for the small off-topic. Maybe i can
fix the "not a jpeg 4:2:2" issue with mencoder?
