    What type of hard drives are you using? SCSI?

    That's a SCSI cable. Looks like the server takes a SCSI drive. As for where to hook up the drives, well, it's a little difficult for me to tell based on the picture, but it looks like spots #5 will be your best bet. Typically drives are installed on the front of the chassis.
