Default Connecting wires in building a PC

Me and my friend are building a PC, and we are sort of stuck at how and where to connect all of the wires. Is there any particularly good guide for connecting wires inside the case, such as case wires to the mobo and the psu, and the fan?
Thanks.

Here is a great and simple guide, on how to build a computer:

Their guide differs from what we can do where the problem we're having is.

On page 4 ( Build a System: Page 4 ) about half way down to almost to the bottom, where you're connecting the power LEDs and switches and stuff, we don't have some seperate thing to connect them to, and we couldn't find anything written on the mobo to connect them to. So, what do we do?

The manual of the motherboard would explain, where to connect the power LEDs, etc...

We were able to get the computer to turn on, but then we had to put in the video card, tried again, and it didn't turn on. Any ideas?

Why did you turn on the computer, and then installed the video card? Unless you had onboard video before that.
