Interlaced DVDs (was: aspect ratio in Optura Xi?)

Thanks Sam! Here is my real problem:

A video I made depends very heavily on the interlacing effects. When I
print to tape there are no problems, so my sequence in Final Cut Pro
is exactly what I want.

What I want is to export my 3:2 sequence in letterboxed 4:3 so that
the aspect ratio doesn't change but keep the interlacing effects
exactly as they were before.

I can't get the interlacing to stay whether I export 3:2 to 4:3 (thus
changing the ratio), or I export 3:2 to letterboxed 4:3. What's worst,
I usually get weird ugly effects in the places where there should be

Anybody who translated the interlacing effects succesfully to DVD? It
shouldn't be impossible...

I wouldn't know how to thank whoever can help me with this, on-or-off list...
