I've a .avi file with PCM extension... Settings:

11024Khz
88.2kbps

But the problem is, I can't convert this to MPEG 1 Layer 3 using virtualdub, Total Video Converter or Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate...

All of them encode at MPEG 2.5 or 2 Layer 3!! Which I don't think is supported by my DVD Player... Any ideas as to how I can convert this PCM to MPEG Version 1 Layer 3 at 11025khz at 96kbps?? any converter which will work and I need it at CBR not VBR or ABR...

Use options that are within the MPEG 1 subset. Look at the LAME documentation for more info.

MP3 (mpeg1 layer 3) only supports 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz frequencies so you'll have to resample your file to one of those

Use the Resample function in virtualdub to resample the audio to 11025, 22050 or 32000 Hz, you should then be able to select a preset from the Compression section but it will be layer 2.5 or 2 depending on the hz... You need to resample to 32k, 44.1k or 48k to be real mpeg 1 layer 3.

but hey, if I resample a 11024 Khz file to 44.1, won't it speed up?? Or if I'm wrong, could someone please explain what this frequency is??

No, it won't speed anything up. Sample rates define the number of samples per second. More samples = smoother transition. It does not involve any speed changes at all

Also your file is not 11024 kHz but 11024 Hz which translates to 11 kHz so in your case, you'll be upsampling... 11 kHz -> 44.1 kHz
