    I usually quit iMovie, start iDVD, pick a theme and hit "add a movie" and pick my iMovie project. I think you have to keep your iMovie project somewhere under Movies folder. This is with iMovie HD '06, if you have '08 versions I don't know whether this easy method still works.

    By the way, if you add chapter markers in iMovie, iDVD will automatically create an extra menu for your movie where you can jump to a "scene". Again, this is for '06 version.

    Ok

    Can iMovie stuff from iLife 06(iMovie HD) be able to be used in the new iDVD 08?

    You have to go to the Share menu in iMovie, and then choose to share to the Media Browser. When you next open iDVD (or any of the other iLife Apps), your movie will appear in the media browser.

    Based on some online reports, yes.
