It's usually marked on the cable itself on the little black bit.

As to where it goes, in 99.9% of boards all the front panel connectors are lumped together in one big block so it's just a case of follow one of the other leads, find the two pins in the block without anything on it and plug it in there. This is 99.9% of boards, because there's always an exception to the rule. Check your motherboard manual.
