most visual audio studios have these things called DVCRs...that have the
analog audio/visual red whit and yellow inputs. In that case you can just
hook your vhs to those and capture into imovie or final cut immediately, one
step. See if there is a community video studio or university that will let
you just go in and do that one day. Those DVCRs are quite expensive though,
so I wouldn't think about purchasing one yourself, unless you were going to
do this kind of thing frequently.

The easiest option hooking up a DVD Player (that has a DVD
record button on it) hooking that up to your VHS player. Then you can copy
to DVD in one REALLY EASY STEP. Alot of DVD players have that option to
record now and they are really cheap compared the inconvenience of all these
other suggestions.
