Just use on of the surround outs for the surround-center to set it up. Then when you have messured it, connect it back to surround-center out again.
There is no setup disk with this possibility as i know of, but there are several in the making.

Hi

I assume what magking means, is to disconnect one of the left or right surround speaker cables from its speakers and then connect it to the rear centre speaker (asssuming the cable reaches!). Then use the test tones on the disc and the tone for whichever surround channel you have connected will come out of the rear centre.

Hope this helps.:)
