Thinkpad Edge E520 - Connect laptop to Stereo question?

hey all

i have a wedding coming up and want to play my itunes playlists from my lenovo thinkpad edge e520 laptop to my stereo, did a little reseach and seems i need "male stereo 1/8-inch plug to two male RCA plugs" and simply run this from my soundcard output to my stereo.  this laptop has a Combo audio jack - can i run the cable from this?  reading it only says its a microphone output? if i cant run from this is there any other solutions.. would appreciate a quick reply ??

yes you can, with the cable you got it won't act as the Mic cable, so it will only output the stereo sound that you need.

This jack-combo is constructed so that regular stereo rings are in the same places + there's that additional microphone ring. So regular jacks work as usual :] It's just like an iPhone or iPod or some other portable media devices.

I, myself use this kind of connection every other week organizing school cinema.
