You connect what you have.

2.1 sound system = connect to front left right and center (All sound goes on 3 speakers)

5.1 sound system = connect fornt left right center rear right left (All sound goes on 5 speakers

7.1... you get the point... set sound output to sound system you have and you are done

I've got 2.0 on 7.1 card :)  it works perfect.

Yes, of course it's backwards compatible!

7.1 means 7 speakers and a subwoofer - if you have fewer speakers, just leave those plugs blank.
