Question about creating a loop

My company wants me to create a loop of footage demonstrating the different tools we sell working, any ideas on how to go about that with Final Cut Express? Or how do I create a DVD that plays again and again on it's own?

The only idea i've had so far is to put the footage on iDVD as a menu that continually loops.

Thanks and happy holidays.

You don't have to do that. Just make your video as usual, then when you author the DVD, use 'kiosk mode' setting. This will make a DVD that does exactly what you want without menus. Press play once, and the DVD will play over and over until you press stop on the player. You can use iDVD for this. See the screen grab from iDVD help.
