You may want to consider a small digital recorder (like they sell for
dictation) that will let you transfer audio files to your computer
rather than buying a mic. You'll probably spend a less money and it
will be a lot easier. Then use Audacity as was suggested earlier to
edit the resulting file if necessary.

On the other hand if you do get a microphone, you'll probably want to
get a condenser microphone (they require a battery or other power
source). They will pick up the sound much better than a 'dynamic'
microphone. They come in all shapes though -- you'll probably want to
stop by a local music shop to see what they have available.
