Having problems with your Altec Lansing ACS 251 Computer Speakers ?

Which Connector Goes Where?

\015 The computer end of the connection cable comes with three connectors, one black, one yellow, and one a puke-green. Trouble is, the fine folks at Altec Lansing didn't seem to think it was necessary to put any kind of identification on them other than color - and my new PC has got lots and lots of jacks in every color of the rainbow - black, blue, orange, green, pink, etc. \015\012\015\012To make matters still worse, the fine folks who built the computer couldn't be bothered to put any actual *words* at those jacks either - just some things that look like (((- ))) and ((( -))), which is nice and specific if you're a small furry purple octoped from Centauri Prime. \015\012\015\012Arrrgh. \015\012\015\012I've long since lost the manuals, brochures and packaging for these speakers - does anyone know of a website where the connection diagram is posted, or does anyone know which color goes to which jack? I'm a little afraid to start plugging them in at random, for fear of frying something. \015\012\015\012Thanks for any help on this.\015
