Default Render problems

Hello,
I have a problem with rendering a movie. Ive downloaded the tutorial of mtmckinley. In this tutorial he explaines its better to render a movie with Targa-files instead of avi.
My problem is that im only able to render avi files into a movie. But my computer renders each file single so that ill get for a 60 frames-movie 60 pictures. Ive also tried to set the "Frame/Animation Ext" to "multi frame" but Im not able to select it.
Thanks.
Heres a visual example of my problem:

Thats right, you need to make the targa sequence into a movie using another peice of software, say video mach, Adobe after effects, Premier, Avid etc etc

You open say videomach and thern tell it to look for a sequence of images, it then compiles them into an animation so that you can then renderit out as a movie. Its a sepperate process to rendering and nothing to do with maya once the images are rendered.
