http://www.vcdhelp.com is a good place to start (although it mostly deals
with windows).

basically you have to convert your AVI's to mpeg with the appropriate
settings (resolution, framerate, etc...) which will cause your avi to split
to 2 - 3 parts, and then you make a vcd from each part.
I use 'kavi2svcd' to deal with the mpeg creation (afaik there isn't a deb
for it) and k3b for burning the mpeg.
