Doesn't matter which side the resistor goes on - so long it's there to drop the voltage, as the LED runs on 3.2V - 3.4V. As far as the lay person goes, don't worry too much which is +ve and which is -ve, test the setup, if it doesn't work, reverse the lead connection.

cool guys,

Okay i just bought the stuff. I bought a pack or resistors, now the only prob is they out of the 12 types none of them have labels as to the ohms. Does anyone know where i could a get a chart with the colours for resistors and the ohms.

Cheers
