    I'll be more descriptive.

    The guitar outlet plug is 1/4" Jack (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_plug).

    Your soundcard inlet is 1/8" socket.

    So you need a convertor, which you can get at small electronics shops (not the household consumer electronics one though, am talking about teh ones where you can get soldering iron etc).

    This convertor will allow you to plug in the 1/4" in. The convertor will havea 1/8" jack as the output. Which you can plug into your soundcard line-in or microphone port (whichever you want)
