Saving stills on cd

Does anybody know know how to make video cd's from stills?
A friend of mine told me of this and I have tried to no avail.
The result I am looking for is a video cd that plays a slide show on a DVD player or any pc.
I know you have to convert the jpg to mpeg and then burn the cd.
i can do any of these steps seperately but when I try to put it all together it gets ugly.

doug Nelson   I know of one way to make slide shows on CD. It allows you to add music as well. You just enter a whole file of your uncompressed JPEGs and drag and drop them into the order you want in a contact sheet format. The music background can be WAV or MP3. Look at This is not the easiest program to use when it comes to fine-tuning things such as the album cover, but there's a good forum and help desk for problems. Anyone know of other programs that do this? FlipAlbum CD is about $50.
