Default Help with Auzentech 7.1 setup...

My fiance surprised me a couple of days ago with a set of Logitech Z-5500's, and I've got them all set up and working beautifully through my PS3, but I'm having issues setting up for the PC. I've got an Auzentech Prelude 7.1 card that I'm running them through, and I can't seem to switch them off of the 2/2.1 speaker setting, so as of now, the rear speakers are lifeless.

I'm downloading the newest drivers, as I remember having to choose a speaker setup when I first installed, but seriously, there isn't a way to change it afterward?

Probably I'm missing something simple, but I've been through the control panel it installs, and I can't find a way to change it.

Thanks in advance.

Heh.... not sure if this is it, but if you're running a 5.1 setup the rear speakers aren't "rear" they're "side". Rear only comes into play when you run 7.1 . (If that's the issue, don't feel bad, I spent a couple of days trying to figure out why I couldn't select the second set of speakers until somebody in here filled me in... :) ).
