without knowing specific desktop environment and default installed gui software, the only thing that is constant across all distributions is the command line which isnt very noobie-ish, sorry.

i am assuming you are able to mount the camera so that it shows up as a hard drive.
Code:
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/usb
you mite need to define the filesystem and your ptp-camera mite not be sda
you can use cdrecord to burn the files.
Code:
mkisofs -r -o tmp.iso *.jpg *.mov; cdrecord dev=0,1,0 tmp.iso; rm tmp.iso
do cdrecord -scanbus if your cdwriter isnt the scsi device 1.

this isnt tested so man up on options.

i think youd need the essential codec-pack from mplayer to play quicktime movies.
