[linux-audio-user] newbie trying to record

I'm just starting with audio on Linux and have gotten stuck - I can't
seem to record anything from the mic or line-in. ALSA and jack seem to
be setup right (with a SB Live! Value) - I get output from XMMS with
jack plugin, and I can hear the microphone and/or line-in input directly
thru the speakers (I turned "Line" and "Mic" up in alsamixer).
However, I can't get anything to record. I've been trying to record
from mic and/or line-in using Ardour with no luck. Considering I might
not be using Ardour correctly, I moved to something simpler - qaRecord.
I start it with "qarecord --jack", but can never get anything to
record and I never see anything on the level monitors, even though I can
hear the inputs directly (do I need something in the --device option?)
qjackctl connections window shows alsa_pcm->capture_1 and capture_2,
which are connected to things in Ardour, but not qaRecord.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
