The simplest answer to your question is "No".
In fact the process very, very easy, but the actual steps vary depending on the software you're planning to use. Usually the process is something like click on "more actions" then on "burn image" (using K3b).
If you need more specific information, it would be a lot easier to advise you if we know what OS you're running now and what software you plan to use to create the DVD.
