Record sounds playing on computer

Record audio being played
I've tried for years to figure this out, and I read tutorials and all that yet it all NEVER works for me. I want to be able to record the sound playing out of my computer and then save it as some kind of audio file and do what I wish with it. Audacity sounded like what I am supposed to use but I can't figure out how to make it work if it would even work for me. I am using digital coaxial out for my speakers but I thought this shouldn't affect the recording. I have my speakers hooked up with direct analog 6 channel connections as well. So I have a digital S/PDIF interface I could record from but it does nothing really - it only works when I play DTS or Dolby Digital movies.

Can someone please help me for once? I'm tired of being unable to record audio off my PC. My only options have been to just stick a stupid mic in front of one of the speakers - which is sucky and low quality. I don't know what makes my computer so special but apparently it is since nothing ever works for me in this regard. Help greatly appreciated!!
