I'm working on a G5 Hackintosh and have a pretty barebones case to work with. It didn't come with anything inside, so I'm left trying to figure out what to do with the front power button. As I'm pretty new at all this I'm really at a loss for what to do with the power switch. I'm planning on individually connecting the USB slots, so I chose not to go the route of getting a full G5 front panel board. And since most guides I've seen online seem to talk about going that route. So my question is what do I need to do to get that wire somehow connected to the motherboard? What cable or hardware would I need to get to make that happen? I do have soldering gun at my disposal, I just don't know the steps that need to be taken to get this working.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
