lol yes because as the name suggests, a 4.1 soundcard only supports upto a 4.1 speaker set. I suggest you go out and buy a SB Live! 5.1 or something similar. Then all your speakers will work because you will be able to plug rear, front and centre speakers all into the card at once.

Unfortunate, but true.
Your options are to get a soundcard that can do 5.1, remove 1 speaker and make it do 4.1 (dunno if rewiring or shifting plugs around is required) or buy exchange your 5.1 speakers for a 4.1 setup.
