Recommendation : buy Doc2Help or RoboHelp.  These are excellent (you will also need MS Word).

If you want a shareware tool try AnetHelpTool this is pretty good and doesn't need word.  I had to mess around a bit to make it kick off my help compiler successfully, but having done that it works well.  Until you register, you're limited to the number of topics you can create.

If you want to do it the hard-way, you can simply use MS Word to create RTF files and then compile using HCW which comes with your compiler.  Special codes go into footnotes to make browser sequences, keywords etc.  These are documented in VC's help system.  Perhaps the best way to learn this, is to start with one of the above methods and then examine the RTF files that are output.
