6 Channel Audio in Leopard?

I have a Biostar TForce4 SLI motherboard, with onboard Realtek ACL850 AC97 soundcard. It has 8 channels for audio, and I just bought a new set of Logitech X-450 5.1 speakers. The problem is that (right now) OSX isn't showing support for anything other than two channels of audio, meaning the only way I can get any sound from the other speakers is through "Matrix" mode, which isn't true surround sound, and doesn't sound nearly as good.

I've tried the speakers in Windows (to verify sound SHOULD be coming out of the speakers, as this is my first surround sound setup) and it does work.

So I was wondering if there is any way I can hack at the system to get 6-channel audio support?

Or, you know, a kext if there is one, haha.
