I was just given an older model Surround Sound System that doesn't have digital inputs. Can I fit this into my current setup?

I have an LG Plasma TV connected to a Dell Zino. The audio out jack (1/8" headphone sized ) on back of the Zino connects to audio in on back of TV.
Today I was given a a Panasonic SC-HT670 Surround System and when I got it home I realized it doesn't have any digital inputs but rather just RCA jacks. My TV only has a digital out jack with no RCA outs so I assume I can't connect the TV to the receiver at all.
I'd still like to connect the Zino to the reciever though so I can at least play my mp3s and AVI's through the speakers. But I'm already using the one audio out of Zino to go to the TV. The Zino does has an HDMI plug though so could I connect the HDMI to the HDMI on TV and then get an adapter to connect the Zino 1/8" audio out jack to the left and right RCA jacks on the receiver? Will I blow up my Zino using both audio out and HDMI? Will it all sound like crap? Or am I going about this all wrong and missing something?
