You need a number of things... it's similar to making an audio CD from
a cassette tape (or LP):
-- a physical connection from your VCR's audio out (most VCRs have
mono or two stereo RCA audio output jacks) into your G4.
Does your G4 have a stereo 1/8" (mini) audio input? Or do you need to
get a USB audio device (such as Griffin Technology's iMic?
-- once you make the physical connection, you need recording software.
There are a variety of options, ranging from the free, open source
Audacity to the relatively expensive Peak (there's a downloadable,
usable trial version) among others.
You didn't say whether you want to simply record the whole 2 hrs as a
single audio track or if you'll want to break it up into multiple
-- Finally, you'll want to burn it as an audio CD... you could use
iTunes for that, or Toast, etc.
I've got a long tutorial online about turning cassette tapes and LPs
into audio CDs.... there's a lot of overlap with what you're trying to
do-- you might want to check it out:
