recording from DVD to video

I have a IBM Aptiva PII - 400mz, and to get a 3D-accelrator(for games) and TV-out from the DVD-drive, I am planning to buy a Matrox Millennium G400 - is that a good choise, or....?

But I wonder if I can record a DVD-film from the PC to a video-tape?

My kids can easyly handle a videotape rather than turn on the computer and get the DVD-disk in the drive and...

And I think it´s wiser to buy a film on DVD rather than on tape.

But can it be done?

Any of the video cards with a TV output will allow you to easily record to a VCR.  It's just straight video (in the US it will be NTSC) and will actually make a very fine quality recording.
