The most common problem for most people is knowing what wire color is positive & which wire color is negative. The colors blue, red, green, light blue, light red & light green are normally positive. The color white & black are negative. Your board uses only 2-pin connectors. The 3-pin power connector can be turned into a 2-pin connector to work with the M848ALU pins.
(Page 13, PANEL1). How to? Take the three pin connector, on the back side of the connector you'll see a small tab that holds the wire into the connector. Use a needle & pull tab up while pulling the wire out at the same time. The wire should slide out. Insert the wire back into the connector next to the other wire. You do not need to hook up the SUS led which stands for suspend.
Pin 1 is positive & the manual shows this by adding the _P = positive.
Pin 3 which is to the right of pin 1, is negative for the hard drive led. Pins 9 & 10 are not used.
Good luck sjcrofts!

LOOK FOR THE FRONT PANEL PIN HEADER.
IT MUST BE SOMEWHERE BY THE EDGE OF THE MB.
THERE ARE MARKINGS LIKE HDD LED, PWR SW ETC.
HOPE THIS HELPS.

Tips for a great answer:
The only place to get it is from IBM, as it was designed specifically for them to go in their ThinkCentre A50 line of computers.
The link for the User's Guide, which is what I presume you need, is:
If, instead, you want the Hardware Maintenance Manual, it can be found at:
Finally, if all you desire is the Quick Reference, go to this link:
