Positive ID!!

I have just bought a new mobo and the manual says to check the contents of the box. There appears to be 3 items missing but I am not sure what they look like to be 100% certain. By identifying the things I do know, and by obvious detault, the 3 items I cannot place are [a] Ultra DMA/133 cable [b] Floppy disk drive cable and [c] COM cable. Could someone briefly describe these bits or point me to a site where I can see some pictures of them! Thanks.

The first 2 are flat ribbon cables. The 3rd I'm not too sure about. Probably a cable with a COM port on the end (9 pin D shaped socket).

Cheers Softstag. The blat ribbon jobs, are they really wide and possibly 40pin connections ?

blat ??? :-( read flat ;-)

40 pin for Ultra DM/133 and a few less for the floppy cable (can't remember exactly how many).

Ahh so I may not be defficient after all! There are 3 of the flat jobs in one sealed bag!

That's probably 2 40 pins for the UDMA cables, and 1 floppy drive cable.

OK pal - reckon that's it then. Thanks for the advice.
