Your files have to be pimped. So install the Pimp program. Here -

Pimp - http://ftp.winamp.com/winamp/nsdn/pimp131.exe
The FAQ - http://www.winamp.com/nsdn/pimp/faq.jhtml
The Howto - http://www.winamp.com/nsdn/pimp/howto.jhtml

You then need to create a pimp script file. This is a text file. Looks like this (the bold parts are things that you can change)-

; start lines with ; or # for comments
Name tillmans AVS files
;name displayed during setup
Text This will install tillmans AVS Presets
;text displayed when install program is started
Outfile myavs.exe
;names the file that PIMP will output.
DefaultDir $PROGRAMFILES\Winamp\Plugins\avs\
;tells the directory where PiMP will place the file that is output (best to leave this as it is)
SetOutPath \Tillman
;places the presets into the AVS directory e.g program files\winamp\plugins\avs\tillman
Addfile mypreset.avs
Addfile another preset.avs
;add your avs files to be included in the pimp file here

Save the text above as tillman.psc or whatever and then use the makepimp command -
makepimp tillman.psc

It should then create myave.exe or whatever name you gave in the .psc file. If there is an error read what it says. Or post back here if you don't get it.

NSIS is an evolved version of PiMP. I prefer it because it also adds the capability to compress the files that are added to it. In fact, it cut the size of my installer in halp (compared to the same installer made with PiMP). I also was able to add more features/functions to the installer (see the "Function Instructions" section of my script ;^). NSIS rules.
