Huh ? How about recording a VOIP session - the stuff going to speaker
originates in somebody else's computer.

Uh, no. It goes through your computer.  But at least you have given me a clue
as to what he might be refering to. (Ie, using it to record skype phone calls
he is making).

One possibility is to use jack to link up the pieces. There have also been discussions in the past as to how to record stuff leaving
the machine.
