Try turning on the mic boost in the mixer. Also, check to make sure that the mic is selected as a recording source on the mixer. :)

Are you running the guitar through an amp first, or just straight into the mic port (direct input, or DI)? If DI, you will definitely need to turn on mic boost and crank the volume up.

get goldwave, great program for sounds/mixing stuff. you can also use it to record music from youtube or other sources and make mp3's :)

Audacity is a very good open source audio recording app. Costs nothing, and works with minimal config (none in my case). :)
