I would only suggest Avid if you know editing very well. It would probably be a big learning curve for you.
You’d probably be better off checking out Ulead MediaStudio Pro 8 or Sony’s Movie Studio + DVD and then move up to the "big boys" from there.
Windows even has a free editor called Windows Movie Maker. While it’s not the greatest, it gets the job done. It can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/moviemaker/default.mspx
