HERE <http://imageshack.com/scaled/medium/910/ei0R1E.jpg> is a 
screenshot of System Settings > Multimedia (I hope this what you're 
referring to)

Got it working!!!
I don't know how though. I messed around with the settings making it go 
through the built-in Audio and then back to the setting as shown in the 
screenshot then used the speaker jack and connected it to the analogue 
audio in and.... It worked!

Thanks for that Clay.
