How To Add Tracks/ Breaks to an MPEG file

I just got an external dvd burner to burn some mpeg files to dvd. The problem is that I would like to add tracks or breaks at certain time points so when I play it on my dvd player I can skip from track to track, just like a regular movie dvd. Is it possible to do that? My burner came with Nero 7, I looked around and couldn't seem to find any feature that does that.

I think most if not all video creation software has that...

capability, and it's creating chapters.

But if you are talking about creating jump point at certain time interval, the only thing that I know would do that is a stanalone dvd recorder (there might be other software that has that ability but which I know nothing of).
