Is there a tool to strip out silent places in a .wav file, or does it have to be done manually?

I recorded a wav file from a MiniDisc onto my laptop - the MD player is getting crotchety and there's extended periods of silence throughout the recording. Is there any tool that can strip out these places where there's no signal recorded? Or do I need to do it by hand (using Audacity)?

Digital Audio Recording

I'm thinking about doing a bit of home recording & have been pondering 4-tracks & the like for a few weeks. Lately, though, I've been thinking it'd make more sense to do it all digitally through my computer & not worry about tapes & stuff. Given the need for hardware and software, what can fellow MeFites recommend that might set me back less than, say, $300?
