Once again the techtalk brainiacs come through! Thanks everyone.

What I'm doing is setting up both a PC-based recording studio, and a laptop 
for portable recording. y'all Ardour geeks are going to have to party without 
me; I'm using Audacity because it doesn't require a PhD in crazed 
interfaces :).

Getting a basic set of gear is pretty straightforward- the part I got hung up 
on was whether to use an internal soundcard or an external USB device. For a 
studio USB widgets work fine, but they're a bit of a hassle for field 

I also have a Zoom H2, which is more fun than everything else put together. :)
