OK, then which one did you select from the Multimedia menu? They 
are "Avidemux (GTK+)" and "Avidemux (QT)". I'll describe it for the QT 
version but it is very similar if not identical with the GTK+ version.

That was the first picture of the movie. For other movies it may not be a 
black screen.

Well, that probably depends on your machine but it isn't important because 
the sound of the final movie isn't recorded while playing the movie but 
it is derived from the original data of the movie file. Actually it is 
copied if you don't change the default settings.

That was OK so far, now you should append the second movie. 
Select "Append..." from the "File" menu. Select the second movie and 
click "Open". You can append more files if necessary using this method. 
Finally save the combined video with "File" -> "Save" -> "Save Video...". 
Enter a new name for the video (use a ".avi" extension) and click "Save".
