"Music Minus One" Setup

I would like to practice classical piano concertos and chamber music by inputting the orchestral/instrumental parts through my electronic piano using MIDI while simultaneously playing the piano solo.

My computer is a Sony VAIO R547 (Pentium III, 600 MHz) with 128 MB of RAM running Windows 98. The sound card appears to be an Aureal Vortex AU8830.

My electronic piano is a YAMAHA Clavinova CLP-560.


(1) Am I correct in assuming that with the proper software I can output the concerto files I find on the web to my Clavinova but with the piano channel muted out to achieve my objective (is the piano solo part on its own channel?)?

(2) What additional hardware, software and cables do I need to accomplish this task?

Thank you.
