    ok. first off
    1) the sound needs to be pluged in to either a: your onboard motherboard connector (4 pins from the tv card to 4 pins used for the cd audio/aux audio.. refer to your mobo manual) or b: audio out -> line-in on your soundcard via a cable with 2 male 3.5mm heads (like the ones for normal headphones/speakers) or c: external speakers

    2) you will need to get an adaptor from an RCA to 3.5mm male jack.. electronics shops your best bet for them, they go in the audio in or if you want (soundcard) line-in or microphone.. if you're planning to record your ps2 games via the tv card plug the audio to the audio in jack so it will record the sound as well..

    yes.. a 3.5mm is the size of the jack, like the ones that is on the end of a headphones that you plug into something eg ipod or (see pic), male just means the thing that sticks out not the hole (hence male and female :D), 2xmale means both sides have the same connector. RCA is also another type of conector, usualy comes with a colour of red(meaning left), white(right), or yellow(video) for most devices (see pic), RCA ->3.5mm male jack is an adaptor or cable with a female rca side and a 3.5 on the other side
    you can purchase such things from your electronics shop or make it yourself if you want

    btw these images taken from dicksmith electronics down at Aus.. i dont have my camera to show you atm

    connect the red one to the audio in.. otherwise you can get a stereo rca->3.5mm and plug both red&white into the adapter and then into audio in
