Default guitar recording

If I wanna record from my guitar directly to my computer what do I need? I heard that using an 1/4 to 1/8 adapter and putting it in the mic in spot will mess up your sound card. So what do I need to record directly?

you need something liek an effects pedal, something along the lines of a Line6 Pod or equivlent, or you can run a line-out from your amp if it has one, or you can mic your amp.
