On my 5.1 set all the small speakers are connected to rear of main woofer (with controls on the front of it to adjust speakers front/centre/rear). One pair of wires go from rear of main woofer to line-in on rear of PC. Another pair of wires from PC Sound card Line-out to HiFi Line-in.

PS - all my small speakers connections and their relevant sockets on rear of Main woofer are colour coded.
