There is a a shareware program called Audiacity which allows you to cut and 
paste sound files together.  It is quite neat, but you will have to spend some 
time to learn it.  It really isn't hard to do.  In fact, Cool Edit 2000 is 
also fairly intuitive and it could be used for the same purpose, but a little 
trickier to paste together multiple files.
