Do you mean record sound playing on your computer? If so, this should help:

Can Audacity record RealAudio or other streaming audio?

If a piece of media is playing on the computer, such as news story streaming, I would like to capture a portion of the audio thru audacity and then make a wav of mp3 file out of it. I was looking at the choices for input on audacity, and it gives microphone. I am looking for a more direct way and not using the microphone as this would further degrade the quality of the audio input. this is what I am looking for.

on the mixer toolbar, choose "wave out mix" instead of "microphone" (i think it helps to mute the mic)
