    OK, my sound card has like five 1/8" jacks of various colors on the back. Would any of those be an input (like a line in)? If not, what do I do? I'm not too knowledgable about hardware, as you can tell.
  2. I supposse you have this configuration:

    line in
    line out
    2 speaker out

    You have to check is your card is a soundround card.

    the easy way is to play a CD and connect the speaker cable in every 1/8 jack. You should hear sound on the line out and in the speaker output. So one of the remain jack is the mic. I think you should use any of then, but check the volume in the mix.

    soundcards always have the same layout.. from left to right ( or right to left, depending on your viewpoint )

    line in
    microphone in
    speakers front
    speakers rear
    ( optionally line out )
    joystick / midi port

    They're usually labeled too. Hard to see, but it's there.
