Surround Sound query

I've not done anything with surround sound before so this maybe a basic question but, does a standard wav/ogg mono sound in OpenAL automatically output in surround if such a system is connected?

i.e. If I move my sound infront/behind the listener will it pipe the sound through the front/rear speakers?

Yup, if you have a surround sound system hooked up, the drivers installed and set the driver to output to 5.1 (or whatever) it will work automatically.

Excellent, easier then I thought, time for a surround sound system!! :D
