Default Power supply

I just got a new power supply from Radio Shack (couldn't pass up a free deal with rebates LOL) and want to use it to power my distribution box for my chargers. It is an ATX Switching Power supply. Does anybody have a link to a good write-up on how to make this work. Hopefully one with pictures LOL.

Thanks,

Glenn

Well, got impatient and wired it tonight. It was a piece of cake. Shorted the green wire from the board inside to a ground wire. That took care of the start-up problem. Then took one of the 4 pin cords that came with it and connected bannana plugs (female) to the 12V wires in it. Bam, 12.43V at the bannana plug and looks like it is going to work just fine.

Whooo Hooo. Not bad for a free power supply (after rebates of course).
