That USB one on iwoot is a piece of junk, honestly it is.
How old is your Blackbook? Not that it matters, don't buy that thing.
Here's the best way (I have made hundreds of vinyl rips)
Get a turntable with a built in pre-amp like this one;
Bush MTT 1 SILVER Turntable: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo
I have this and it's very very good for this purpose. You just connect to line in, with the pre-amp switched on (if you don't use it it's horribly quiet), and use Audacity or Audio Hijack Pro (my fave) to record.
I also use an Edirol USB interface and a seperate pre-amp, but it's not necessary, it's just my preference.
You'll be hard pushed to find a turntable that will play 78's now. Of course if you have one, you can use that!
