Thi is not an easy queation, it's a very complex one and you wouldn't want to know what does it take..

It takes about 5000$ of equipement to make this happen on a semi professional level.

This is what you need:

1) Real time video Capture Card (Like Miro DC-30) or 40 now
2) A powerful computer
3) A SCSI hard drive A/V 7200 RPM
4) A software like Adobe Premiere 4.2

All this tools are necessary for the following reasons.

The most recent card of Miro has combined the VIDEO and AUDIO which was a big problem in their previous cards (Synchronizing the video and the audio)
Their previous card use to capture Video only.
Your sound card will capture Audio.
Now Adobe Premiere through your expertise would try to SYNC Video with Audio. (big problem that was)

Not anymore with the New Card as it captures Audio & Video in the same time.

Now Adobe Premiere will make you edit the clips and export them or save them in AVI format (or others) with the required resolution for your final output.

The SCSI drive A/V which stand for Audio/Video is required as these drives do not have a CACHE which is the enemy of capturing.
These drives DO NOT DROP FRAMES, which at the end would have made a very sluggish recording while using regular IDE drives.

This is the real break down of the situation.
Hope it helped

I just used my matrox video capture, talked into my microphone and made an .avi file that shows me talking and i can hear my voice.  About 8 minutes of this fills up a CD with 640 megs.  

How is your suggestion better?

Well as I said, you could do it like this but look at the size of the file..

No video compression, no audio compression, nothing.
Of course I had a feeling you wanted to make something a little bit professional, and this is what I suugested above.

How many time did you downloaded a 5 minutes avi file that is about 30mg?? this is what they use compression.
