Either iDVD, maybe Burn might do it. If you want to go fancier, then iDVD. Oh, this is important too. Certain brands of dvd blanks work, some don't. Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden do, Sony and TDK not so much. Your mileage may vary

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.)
Nicely explain that you may return the computer without iDVD. That usually does the trick. 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.
Yes, there are programs that will put a movie on a DVD. I have tried most of the other substitutes including Toast, Burn, Wondershare, and others. None of them come anywhere near the ease-of-use and power of iDVD. IDVD is specifically designed to work with iMovie.
