I have an ATI all-in-wonder Radeon, working under Windows 2000, latest ATI
drivers, and no crashes...

To capture VHS video all he needs is any ordinary
video card or tv tuner card with video and audio
input. The ATI All in Wonder Pro 128 and WinTV-D will
work. Most TV tuner cards have video input so they can
be used for that and just ignore the TV tuner. Be
careful of any from ATI though. They work good with
Win98 and ME but don't have drivers that run in
Win2000 and XP without crashing.
WinTV and ATI TV cards are cheap on ebay but make sure
they are the ones that have video capture and the
necessary cables are included.
Another option is to use an external Dazzle video to
firewire adapter connected to a firewire card.
He will need a very large hard drive though. Capturing
a 1.5 hr movie can take around 7Gb.
