Hmmm, I read all of it and I have one question, there is another site that I have looked at and it says you solder the resistor to the node (The +) and the manual that gave me says connect to the cathode (The -) which one do I do??? Also I want to do my moonlights this style:

Hook it to the - or cathode side, also I know radio shack has 100 ohm and that's close enough if you are using the transformer I posted the link for. If you use another then use the calc. in the back of the manual to get the right resistor.

BTW Your welcome. No I didn't buy it. Someone emailed it to me and I'm just passing on the favor.

Also, I have one more thing, I decided to go with your power supply suggestion\

http://www.radioshack.com/product.as...Fid=273%2D1757

and I did the math:
Adapter=4.5
LED=3.7
Resistor=Going to find that out

I did 4.5-3.7=0.8 and then divide 0.8 and .02=40, Is that the Ohm of the resistor I need to get??

I want to do the cool telephone wire method, but I dont know if the radioshack adapter has the telephone wire to plug into the coupler then to the 5 connections that go to the leds. Does radioshacks adapter have the telephone connection??

Yes 40 sounds right, and no the adapter does not have the telephone connector, you have to put it on.

Also, do I need that special rj (Telephone connector) crimp to crimp on the connectors or do the connectors just slide on??

I found a portable cd player adapter and the spec on it say:

Output: 6V DC 600mA

Would this work??? Im trying to save as much moneya as possible, Im scavengering areound my hoes for telephone cords and all for my moon lights.
