Audacity is quite good, it will record from line in so you can plug you tape player in to that.
Also allows for editing, croping/levels etc.

Yep, Audacity is the tool. It'll also allow you to clean up the recording and eliminate the almost inevitable background noise with a great noise removal tool.

No Problem, Linux has loads of apps to do almost anything! And often more than one for each, so it can be fun trying to find the right thing!

I use Audacity, too - it's good..

If you want to reduce clicks / surface noise from an LP recording, Gnome Wave Cleaner is also excellent - but I make the initial recording in Audacity.

There's an awesome amount of audio software available for linux.
Not sure what distro you use, but for Fedora CCRMA provides a huge listing of tools. Even if you can't use it together with your distro it's a great database for info on audio apps. But in my experience Audacity has the best ease of use / number of available options ratio
