desktop specs on headphone/microphone

Last Modified: 2012-10-30
some desktops have this 2 round connectors infront of their machines.

"Front I/O includes dedicated headphone output, and a microphone/headphone jack"
the connector that is a microphone/headphone means it works as either microphone or headphone?

If I have a combo jack (single connector) of a microphone and headphone, can i plug it in to this port and expect it to work?
