HELP w/speaker connection

Stupid question, sorry..

I just got a custom built pc and I'm not quite sure how the speakers can properly connect to the soundcard/motherboard.. I have Creative Inspire 5.1 speakers and my motherboard has built in sound (nForce N78x deluxe).. I can get my center and front channel speakers going, but nothing out of my rear speakers.. The setup seems somewhat awkward as there are two sets of 3 audio plugs.. A vertical set and a lower horizontal set. The vertical set has one plug which is different from the others.. Anyone have a similar setup? Thanks a lot,

I presume your sound card is not a 5.1 sound card?
