Once burned from iDVD it can be read on any PC, Mac or other computer system that reads the dvd format of the disc's you use. To burn a dvd I'd recommend watching the iDVD tutorial on that. You can find the iDVD tutorials at:
Also there is an iLife forum and one specifically for iDVD, if you have additional questions I'd recommend posting on that forum.

Do you/does he have iLife (including iDVD) installed?
If not, iMovie itself - depending on the version - no longer has the capability to burn directly (older versions do).
If neither iMovie nor iDVD are an option, you will need some other burn software. The burn software takes care of the video content so that it can then be viewed in any DVD player.
Post back with what you have installed and then we can offer some more suggestions.

Thank you for your reply. I have tried using IDVD to burn the disc to find out "i do not have a supported super drive and whilst I will be able to work in IDVD I will not be able to burn discs" .. guess I'm stuffed !

What Mac do you have and what version of OS X?

I have an i Mac 9.1. OS X 10.6.8. There is no burning device found on the system. I feel so foolish asking these obvious questions however the content of the video ( A level work ) is so important I'm being very careful what I do with it, so for now it remains in my project libary in i movie ( 2009 ). Thanks for all your help.
