Basic steps:

Connect VCR to some kind of PC capture device
Play tape, record on PC
Recompress captured video, edited if needed, to either VCD (MPEG-1), SVCD (MPEG-2), or AVI (DivX?) format, depending on what you want to do with the CDs.
Burn CDs, enjoy
For capturing VHS, you'll be limited in terms of quality to about VCD resolution (352x240), no point going higher than that. For lots more information on creating VCDs, see
