Default Batch render&movie problem

OK, i made a smple rig, and made an animation with it. The animation plays perfectly fine within the maya window. But for some reason, when I try Render-> Batch Render, Batch render opens, but nothing else happens...nothing. Yet it does not crash. Second, can someone tell me how to export an animation/movie? I really have problems with this...
^For this question, please don't direct me to a video tutorial...I have a 5 meg limit for donwloading one file... (Please don't ask why (PS: I read the stickies))
and second, if possible have it as text on this website.
Thank you in advance!

are you rendering single frame images or trying to render an AVI?
the thing is not to render as an AVI

Also keep the script editor open when you fire off a batch render, you can see the progress, it may take a while for the renderer to kick in on some occasions, its a bit like it for me on somedays, Maya can be a bit cranky, its like an old cantankerous man on days LOL
