I want to be able to design my own menu's for dvd's comprised of short video
clips. What is a good program to use? This may be a dumb question but can i
use a flash menu and some kind of autorun to launch it? This will need to
work on dvd players as well as dvd drives.

That won't work.
The best DVD authoring program is DVD Studio Pro 2.0 for the Mac. This
allows you to do virtually anything you'd find in a commercial DVD including
Dolby Digital 5.1, angles, language tracks, subtitles, etc...
You'll want Photoshop or at least Photoshop Elements. You'll also want
Final Cut Pro or Final Cut Express (you could also use Avid or the
discontinued Premiere). And you might also want Adobe After Effects if
you're serious about menu effects.
Of course you could just modify the templates in DVD Studio Pro 2.0.
If you're not interested in "advanced" features (DD5.1, angles, scripts,
subtitles, etc...) then iDVD would be the way to go for the Mac. It's free
with any new Mac, so is iMovie (which for light work could replace Final
For Windows, the best application is Adobe Encore, not as good as DVD Studio
Pro 2.0, but best you can do on Windows XP. Same thing here, you'll want
Photoshop, After Effects and Premiere.
