Under Mathematica 3.0, you will need to use Display[] to create individual
GIFs and then use a third-party utility to string them together.  There
are numerous free/source/shareware utilities out there for doing this on
all platforms.

Under Mathematica 4, you can export _lists_ of Graphics objects to an
animated GIF file with Export[].  The option ConversionOptions allows you
to specify parameters that influence the animation.  They are documented
in the online reference guide.  Paste this expression into a Mathematica
notebook and evaluate it:

FrontEndExecute[
  FrontEnd`HelpBrowserLookup[
    "RefGuide",
    "Export"
  ]
]

At the end of the entry, you will find a section titled "Additional
Information."  Click on the group open/close icon on the left to expose
the information, which is arranged in order of target format.

Note that ConversionOptions suboption names are strings.
