If the originals were uncompressed avis.... like what is captured from DV tapes, I wouldn't go below 6800 or so. I really don't like to go below 8000 actually. You should split it onto multiple discs if the length is an issue. I also don't like ac3. I prefer PCM audio. Don't listen to everyone saying you can't tell a difference, because you can. A HUGE difference. Do a test a see.

just wanted to second Salt on that one...my personal feelings are PCM-only for audio, and *nothing* less than 6Mbps [8Mbps is what i usually set at]
