this should work:
if you add any switches:
pd -alsa -r &
(ps. I just realized, after reading the next question, that
you must be on the OTHER os. I have no idea if the above
examples will work in THAT os).

you can test a CD. Put the CD in, press "play" and make sure
your sound driver preferences are set to be ready to "record"
from the CD output (usually there's a check box for that) and
this way you should be able to catch the signal with [adc~].
However, that's not the same as using an external audio
source (line-in); on some systems the CD trick will work but
not line-in or mic-in or whatever. But on the OS I assume
you're using you shouldn't have any problems with that.
to play .wav files within PD you can use arrays with
[tabread4~], [tabread~], [tabplay~] or simply with [sfplay~]
or [sfread~] if you have ggee (I believe).
