"Krecord" could be an option but is not in the repos anymore, maybe you
can search in the snapshot archive:
Probably that packages wwere for Debian 4.x, not sure if it will install
in lenny :-?
Or you can try to compile from sources:
Just note that this is an old and discontinued application that required
KDE 3.4 and all its Qt 3.x libraries.
So you can explorer another packages, like "qarecord":
(maybe you can still find a release that works under Qt3...)
Another option could be installing the "gnome-media" metapackage that has
the gnome-sound-recorder app, but I personally, prefer not to mix desktop
environments libraries/applications (call me "old-fashioned", but I hate
dealing with silly DE collisions :-P).
