After helping a friend do this, I have found that plugging in the record player
to the mic will work.  

Pete, your large/small signal input theory is roughly correct...  Just test at
lowest volume (blowing out speakers really um, well, blows).

You could always record in 'near silence', and then normalize with a sound
editing suite (anyone know of a good one?).
