How do I record more than one track at a time with the Behringer UCA-202

So I'm in a bit of a spot here. I just recently bought the Behringer UCA202. I have no problems getting a recording from it. However, I am having trouble figuring out how to record more than one track at a time with it. I am currently using a macbook with garageband and a Yamaha MG102c mixer. I will admit that I am very new to macs and garageband, and this might be where my problem stem from.
I used to use the tascam us-122 interface before I got the mac, but I haven't been able to get the tascam to work with my mac. I checked around and it seems that alot of people have the same problem. (If anyone knows how to get the Tascam US-122 to work with Leopard, I'm all ears)
So, I bought the behringer UCA202 as a replacement of the tascam. I already had the mixer so I thought that I would save myself come cash.
In short, is there a way to record simultaneous tracks with the UCA202 or am I stuck with one at a time? I know that one at a time is the way to go, I just have an acoustic guitar and vocals, but sometime just for getting ideas down quickly 2 at a time or more is very useful.

Thanks alot for the help, I'm looking forward to your reply.

Well to be honest the UCA202 and its little brother are not a reliable interface at all. Most don't even get it to work at all.

But if you do have it working you can actually get two tracks out of it by panning your incoming tracks one hard left and one hard right. It doesn't do a true 2 track set up but will give you two mono tracks if you do it that way.

Does it show up in your audio option's as a USB codec or something else?

You can also try heading over to the Behringer site and downloading the driver package that is available for it and see if that helps get it set up a bit better.

OH, and by the way. The previous post's were sent into the abyss as there was an emergency server move and some data was corrupted.

well, not corrupted, just didn't flit over to the new server...not sure why, I could sync it back up, but then we'd loose the posts made after that, so, well, there ya go.

We are now on a quad core server with 8GB of ram and only a few other, well, rock!

Flit, nice word.

It looks like most were caught and responded to from what I got in email.
