AS you don't have iDVD installed, you need to export the Slideshow to the Finder. This will make a QuickTime movie of it. Then using whatever DVD authoring programme you choose, just add the exported file to its project.

just got a brand new iMac
If you are still within your 15 day return period. Call Apple they will sent out iDVD at no charge. (There are no realistic substitutes.)
You MUST speak to a senior advisor to get a free copy. The first tier people cannot do it.
If that doesn't work you can purchase iLife 11 (includes iDVD) on disk.
IDVD is a wonderful piece of software and well worth the low cost of $40.
