Tell the friend that due to an amp explosion you are now temporarily deaf and will judge her friend solely on looks.
having only 2 mic inputs it wont really do that good a job at mic'ing drums, but yes for guitar and vocals, and also drivers -can- be downloaded. Some people have some problems with them but personally i never had any trouble with it.
If you want a good workable drum recording go for an interface with at least 4 mic inputs.

Judging from your gear and and all I assume you're recording metal. Not being able to mic the kick and snare separately will crush the quality of your drum track.

Ive heard good and bad reports from that interface.
If you can I would look into a used PreSonus FP10. They generally go for around $400 new

Drivers can always be gotten online

At the very least I would use a 4 input interface with XLR preamped inputs...such as the M-Audio Fast Track Ultra USB 2.0 however that goes for $350 new and you are better off going for the PreSonus at that point...

i returned mine for its older brother DP-01 FX, no need for a computer to be there all the time, the difference is 300 bucks but the cost is well worth it
