hello

Im interested in getting my stuff recorded, ive read the sticky up the top but they dont seem to answer some of my questions.

Ive got a band... so i dont really mind about the money cause we can splitthe costs.
So what i have read is that i need mics and a mixer. I wanto record to my computer, so is this right, connect the guitar output to mixer and drum mics to mixer and mixer into the mic socket on my soundcard. Now with the soundcard, i have a soundtek AC'97 which is a standered soundcard, do i need to buy a new sound card?

And if i just wanto record with an electric acoustic, do i plug it into the amp and the from the amp to the computer soundcard? and if i just wanto use a standered acoustic with no preamp, do i plug the mic into the soundcard?

Any help will be appreciated thankyou!
