Any way to capture movements on desktop into video?

Here is what I would like to do:

I need to create a couple tutorials for work. Multiple tutorial videos will be recorded and burned onto a CD. This disc will be given to new employees to run and follow when they get new computers. I want to record my desktop while I perform certain tasks (i.e. setup Outlook, connect to network drives, install new printers, etc.).

Basically, I need some sort of video camera program. It will record anything that happens on my desktop and capture mouse movements, typing and sounds.

Any suggestions?

CamStudio 2.0 (NOT v2.1 nor camtasia studio)

here's some examples i made in the past (to capture the video; made the .gif with another program) :
Example 1

Example 2

oh, and nearly all the animated .gifs i contributed in the animated gif thread were originally captured from the video source using camstudio

Thanks for the link. I came across Camtasia Studio v3 during my searching. What's wrong (besides it isn't free) with that app?

If you consider recording screen to flash, you can google "screen record flash" to find some, one of the best is wink:

here's a sample:

the good thing is: not only record, but you can also add annotation/note/infobox...
