Default sound card to surround sound system

on one computer, i have a creative labs zs sound card. I was wondering how would I hook it up to the BOSE system I have in the family room. I have a Lifestyle 25, and it works only with the 2-channel RCA plugs (yet creates INCREDIBLE surround sound)

i dont know the name of the plugs, but... u know the plug used on your headphones, thy make a cord with one end like that, and 2 RCA plugs on the other end.

but since i, like many others just have old cords layin around, i just cut the headset plug off, and spliced in 2 RCA plugs.
