i was going to suggest the same. if it's just a few cherished 
recordings, you can try audacity and lots of manual work. but if you 
want to plough through 50+ recordings, you really want to find a mac or 
windows machine somewhere and get izotope or a similar product.
after doing the math, you may find that it might be more economical to 
hand your records to a professional audio restoration shop, depending on 
how many records you are planning to digitize. reputable shops will 
offer you a short demo of what they can do, before you commit yourself.
