It depends on the guitar amp and the sound card in your computer.
What you do not want to do is to plug a speaker output into the sound will toast it pretty quick!

If your amp has a Line Out, that will work. Then you would connect it to the Line Input on your sound card.

I'll warn you now though, that unless the output on the amp is compensated (that is, has a high frequency roll off to mimic a speaker), it's going to sound like a bunch of mosquitoes.

The safest (and aurally, the best sounding) thing is to put a decent mic in front of the speaker on the amp.

You have 2 options, the first of which I dont think is nearly as easy.

1. Do what Mr. Dave said and get a decent sound card because thats really whats making it sound good, not the program.

2. (What I use) This option is usually cheaper and works VERY well despite what people may try and persuade you to do. A fast track external audio box like in the picture below will record any thing you can muster up. Mic, piano, guitar, bass and on and on.

This is an M-Audio fast track you can get anywhere for 50-100 bucks. I suggest getting the 100 dollar version because it comes with a very easy to use but solid music editing program (along with thousands of samples).

--On the other hand if your willing to spend money or know your way around the internet you can get a program such as garage band/fruityloops/sonar etc.
