There’re cables for the hard disk, the floppy drive, and for COM and parallel ports
(if they are not onboard). The cables have to be correctly aligned. Look for pin number 1,
marked with a “1” on the board for each connector. Align this to the red/blue
line on the cable

done. Keep it aside for a while. We now need to fix the drives into the cabinet. Place the
hard disk, the CD-ROM drive, and the floppy drive into their respective slots and put the
screws in place

back into the cabinet. The cabinet closes only when it’s put the right way in

Now connect data and
power cables to the drives. Data cables go in only one way. Insert them such that the
red/blue edge is near the power socket. Likewise, the power connector goes in only one
way. The power connector for the floppy drive is smaller than that for other drives

Take special care connecting the audio cable to the card (its other end goes to the CD-ROM
drive). These connectors are very small and can tax your patience
