The cable you are looking for is an rca to stereo 1/8th inch. It looks like the one here: http://www.cablewholesale.com/specs/30s1-01160.htm
.You can get it at most places that sell electronics. The length varies as well. Make sure that it is stereo on the 1/8th inch end: there will be 2 black rings at the tip of the cable, not one. That is a mono cable & will not do you any good.
You will then proceed to connect the cable to the Line-In
jack on the back of the computer. As i was typing this I found some visuals to give you an idea of this; it invloves using WMP, but youll get the idea.

By default Audacity is set to record to mono. You will need to change this: open Audacity & choose Edit > Preferances
. Under the Audio I/O
tab, where it says Recording, click the down-arrow to the right & choose 2 (Stereo)
from the drop-down list. Also, in the main area of Audacity, near the top click the down-arrow & choose Line-In
Now, to export the files to MP3, you will need the LAME MP3 encoder. Here is where you can find insrtuctions on how to download & install this plug-in. On the Lame download page, just choose any of them. Theyr'e the same. See here:Lame MP3 Encoder
Hope this helps.
