Default Motherboard Installation Question

I recently bought this motherboard
Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TPower I45 LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard - Intel Motherboards
and one thing i noticed is that there are no little metal rings around the holes on the top side of the mobo where i screw it to the case. they are there on the bottom side but not on the top. the case came with similar screws to these. http://biorobots.cwru.edu/server/how.../standoff2.jpg

my other computer had the metal rings on both sides so this has left me confused. this board is much newer than my other board and i'd be shocked to see if it doesn't use the metal rings around the screw holes and i would have to end up getting special washers for the top of the mobo. is it alright if i just use those screws right on the top of the board?

Yes it is. Every motherboard is different. I've already built computers with this board so I know what you're talking about.
