For the CD Drive, you have a molex connector ussually on the right side of it, and there should be several of those hooking off from the power supply wires.. their 4 pin connectors.
There is also going to be a 'IDE' cable, which has 40 pins on it so to speak, and it has holes (its a female cable), and its keyed so you won't be able to mess it up.
One end of the IDE will go into the motherboard (look at the motherboard manual), and the other end will go right into the CD Drive (you'll see where.. its a big block, you can't miss it).
