ok, heres a weird question for you brainiacs out there. I'm trying to build a switching fanbus thing, but I'm scavenging parts. I have a compaq proliant raid array with a s$&t load of 2 color LED's in it. I hooked one up to my 12v test psu and one side worked fine (green) but the red burnt right out. I know I'll need a resistor, what kind?

second question. the reset swich on an old AT case I have LOOKS like a spdt switch. I mean it has 6 poles on the back. The question is Is this a dual on single off position switch? and what posts would I wire?
