Or find a local shop doing video capture - they might even do it 
directly to a suitable for web version, but at least make DVD of the VHS.

For Windows this does the trick: http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html
And it's free to use too.

Checking out some basic tutorials is also a very good idea, for example 
here: http://www.videohelp.com/convert

You also need to decide how you want the video in there: should visitors 
be able to view it on the site, or should they download it for viewing 
with their mediaplayer, or maybe both? For showing video online I'd 
recommend Flash video, and for downloads mpg-format.
