    If you don't have a Torrent program installed then the alternative is the likes of Limewire (with all the attendant problems inherent in that).
    http://www.utorrent.com/download.php

    If you have problems setting up software then it would be best to have a teenager set it up.
    The torrent program comes with search capabilities to find material to down-load.

    If the D/L's are in AVI format and you have a DVD player that can show them (ie DivX compliant), then the file(s) need merely be burned to a DVD disk as data.
    Nero Burning Rom is one app that does this.
    If your player needs the files in 'DVD' format, the AVI files need converted.
    The conversion will reflect your tv screen shape (regular or widescreen) and if you live in PAL (UK) or NTSC (North America).

    The converted files are authored to disk using the likes of Nero (which creates a menu) or DVD Shrink+DVD Decrypter (which doesn't).
