It is almost that simple. The other step needed is to make sure
that your MIDI synth is the recording source, selected in the
recording mixer. If the synth is an external one, you'll use the line
input as your source; source selection is pretty fundamental to
working with sound card recording.
If your sound card cannot record MIDI while playing (and some are
limited that way), there are workarounds, but the simplest one is to
get a new soundcard. You didn't mention which one you were using, but
the popular SB Live is easy to use for this purpose, either from line
input or using its internal synth.
The recording mixer is in the windows mixer applet, menu
options/properties, pick the recording button.

Well, software can do it too. A very good, not too expensive
playing option is Roland's VSC88 3.0 (www.edirol.com), a software
synth which includes the ability to render the output directly as a
wave file rather than playing it. There are many others, some are
