Youneedamanual!!! On most older machines the little wires have labels on the connectors which tell their function. There may also be labels on the mobo. But if there aren't any labels you need the manual for the motherboard, usually in .pdf format, and the one for the box, or the older machines motherboard. So you may need two manuals.

FIC doesn't have a version of the manual on their website yet! so I can't help you on that. But here is the support page for the board. Usually the power switch will be the pins at the end of the connector.
