I'd have thought you could probably use something like Audacity (or a 
command line application, maybe arecord) to capture the audio as long as 
your sound card has an internal mixer (most do, unfortunately my laptop 
doesn't).  You'd have to turn off system sounds though (such as e-mail 
notification jingles, beeps, dings etc as they would get recorded too).
