I think it may be different from drive to drive.  I only connected the front two.  What you should do before the mod is take the cover off, plug it in, and short the connections you are going to solder with a wire.  If the drive opens you know which ones to solder.

MaxamusCrasious, I didnt mean to be such an ass.  I started the mid shift and have been a bit cranky :)
