    Yeah you can do it with a single trip to Radio Shack.

    You need 1 stereo 1/8" to RCA Y-cable and 2 RCA female to 1/4" male cables. Connect the 1/8" to your computer's audio out (headphone jack) then plug the male ends of the red and white RCAs into the female ends of your RCA to 1/4" extensions. Plug the male 1/4"s into channels 1 and 2 of your amp. This will do the trick.

    You might run into some extra noise, ask about ground loop cables. You also might want to consider a mixer between your computer and your amp to trim audio and EQ, but you technically don't NEED it to do what you're trying to do.
