There's no extra software required, you simply plug the guitar into the line-in socket of your sound card. However you will probably have to buy an adapter as the guitar jack is bigger than the soundcard jack. These are cheap and readily available at any electical store.

If you had something you could use as a pre amp to bump up the volume, it would make a big difference. A cheap mixer, guitar modeler or a pedal like Bad Monkey.

Soundcards in computers are usually designed for playback rather than recording. Somewhere down the track you may have to look at the soundcard again to see if it's really good at capturing the true tone of your guitar.
