    I would like to hook a few LEDs onto the switch that turns on the CCFL. I drew it out below. Do you think this will work or am I way off base.

    that would work, they are in parallel so you are fine, because the led's are diodes it will defo make sure there is no reverse voltage - take some pictures when you are done :-D

    i'm not an expert,
    but i'd say the resistor must be on the 5v+ wire, not the ground,
    might wanna check that out

    Thanks for the help.

    I thought the same thing. But I was going from the diagram from System Cooling.com. The only problem was their diagram didn't have the switch. Well I think it's time to warm up the soldering gun.

    Actually, in this case, it really doesn't matter which end the resistor goes, just as long as it's there to limit current and not kill the LEDs.
