removing unwanted audio

I am very very new to video editing of any sort. I have just finished transferring a family video from my Video camera to the computer using dvgrab. The resultant files are ****.dv. When I load them into kdenlive the audio and video are all on the same track. If I want to cut out the superfluous background noise, talk etc, and replace it with music how do I get to the individual sound tracks. Sorry if that doesn't make the best sense.

You simply can turn off audio with a click on the speaker-icon at the left in the video-track of the timeline and put your music to an audio-track.

Or, if you want to keep some parts of camera sound and silence others, use keyframed volume.

you may want to split the audio from the video for more control also. You can do this by right clicking on the video track and selecting "Split Audio". It will be initially "grouped" with the video clip, but you can also ungroup by right clicking "ungroup clips". But Marko and TiKaey's suggestions will be fine it you just want to stick music over the video
