ok, when the motherboard is in the computer case, the place to put the power switch cable is going to be on the bottom right of the motherboard when you are looking at it when its in the case.

Yeah, you should see a little thing near the bottom right that says PWR.. or something of the sort, it'd go there.

Without knowing the mobo make and model its hard to say tbh , i would just look for the pwr printed near the front pannel connector pins or just try each one , once you have he power one you can find out the mobo make and go on the internet and find the ones for the reset sw and pwr led

Ok. Your motherboard is manufactured by Tyan and uses the Via Apollo Pro 133 chipset. Here is the Tyan Product Archive. Your's should be one of the bottom six boards listed under the socket 370 section. On each motherboard description page, there are three clickable icons at the top of the page next to the motherboard name. The third one will show you a .pdf file that shows the location and layout of the pins.

by looking at your picture there i noticed your computer has AGP slots. so your motherboard is quite old.
