Audacity has a built in function to do this but it is not as good as 
Sound Forge and only suitable for gentle use ie. partial noise 
reduction. It is easy to noticeably damage the sound if used too heavily.
The best noise reduction I've used, mainly for vinyl record cleanup, was 
Waves X-Noise and the other Waves noise reduction plugins. Expensive and 
not Linux though.
I'm also keen to find a better Linux solution.
