I'll second this.  Though I find the interface somewhat clumsy, I've
had a fair amount of success with audacity.  You can grab a small
sample of "silence" and audacity will analyze it, then you can
subtract out the noise from the silence from the rest of the track.
It works pretty will if the noise isn't too loud.
