Computer power should not be an issue. Transcoding/Exporting just takes time. Most of us don't like burning with Encore anyway.
Export from Premiere as MPEG2-DVD. Use Scale to Fill. Your main problem is setting a bitrate. What is the total length in minutes of all your movies? Any motion menus etc?
Build to folder is fine; but built to image may make the options simpler. Build to the external drive, and put on roomie's computer.
PC use ImgBurn; Mac use Toast.

Not a Mac guy, but from Encore, export as a Disc Image, which makes an .iso file that should be easily burned on any PC or Mac with freeware.

OK so the first time i tried to make an disc image it just siad the ecoding failed after an hour of it. Then i changed the aspect ratio on the menue and it worked. It went to a zipped up file. an dthe file said archived. heres what it looks like
this kind of confuses me. which part am i supposed to bring to the burn software? the whole file?
lol Thanks guys.
Again for Windows, I always create an ISO from Encore and use Imgburn to write that ISO to disc by double clicking on the ISO (my file association in Windows is that when I double click on an ISO, Imgburn opens) and Imgburn then reads the "inside" of the ISO and writes a DVD
>It went to a zipped up file
What you say and what you show are not the same... ZIP is zip, ISO is "sort of like" a zip file, but it is the special format of a video file
When you have Mac burning software (Toast?) it will know what to do with the ISO file, just like Imgburn knows on the Windows side of things
