Tape Looping!

One of my latest endeavors has been to re-create the "tape loop" track that was created for the song Money by Pink Floyd. After endless scouring of the internet to find a simple audio track of just this loop of cash registers, I found about ten billion phone ringtones and some cheap pron that was about as fulfilling as eating your own snot. Disallusioned, I decided to splice the track myself, and have since been searching for a way to separate the "instruments" of the song from the intro cash register reel that Roger Waters created, and keep that as an MP3 for the intro to our performance. Thanks to a friend (thanks Tom), we are making a little progress, but need ideas as to get the cleanest sound possible. If anyone has any ideas as to how we can do this (we are using the freeware Audacity by the way, please comment with suggestions.

As for background, I have set up a group to perform for a talent show, hopefully performing Money, and the far easier "Us and Them". I include their names simply to give them the attention they deserve for putting up with my dictatorial tendancys, and they deserve mention for their efforts.
The group:
Vocals - Sean
Lead Guitar - Travis
Rhythm Guitar - Myself
Percussion - Eric
Bass Guitar - Frank
Keys/Synth - Ruthie
Alto Sax - Sean as well
Tenor Sax (including the Dick Parry Solo) - Rachel

Thanks to you all, and I hope I can get video of the performance to share with all you awesome viewers.
Good night, and have a wonderful week!
