Got a small problem.

have motherboard set up w/ fan, heatsink, hd, etc.
but the case I'm using is a Gateway case and the
wires coming from the power on switch (the external button
you press to turn the computer on) are in a 8x8 plastic
thing and there's 6 wires. The motherboard clearly
has 2 prongs set aside for an ATX-SW but the case
doesn't seem to support this. Does anyone know
how to build a simple power on switch that goes
to the motherboard? Or does anyone know which
two wires from an Gateway case are supposed to
go into the atx-sw?

e-mail me if u can.

Thanks,
A

the swich is just a single pole , momentary "on"

there's two prongs for atx, so the one thing is just
one wire?
