Well, theorehtically, it is just 2 switches and a light on that module. So, with 5 wires, I'd assume that 2 are for the power switch (by connecting these, it should enable the switch), and 2 more are probably for the bios bank selection switch (so, this would probably work connected or not...depending on how you set your bios up), and the 5th would probably be a ground. I'd also make the assumption that the 2 that are paired are going to be right next to each other. (of course, you'd have to cut off the connector to do this....) Your best bet is to wait for a new module....

The 2 switches (other than on/off) and 3 wires make up the bios selction.
If you can figure out the 2 wires to power the chip (should cause the blue LED on the chip to turn on when powered...if the Lite has an LED on the chip itself), then it'll probably run even with the other 3 wires disconnected.
Keep in mind, this is all hypothesis.... I have no X2.2lite to test this...
EDIT: Okay, I just took a look at the 2.3b module. (If the 2.2 module is just like the 2.3b) One of the switches is for flash protection. So, my theory of the 3 wires for bios select won't work. Still, the chip should work with just the power wires connected. It will just default to bank 0 and probably flash protected.

The new X2Pros work without the LPT Flash adapter, but not without the switch module. The old X2Pros wouldn't work without the LPT adapter because the switches were on it.
It won't hurt to try it without the module connected...give it a shot. If it DOES work though, you HAVE to let me know.
If you know where the wires go, then soldering them in would work. They are small points, but if you are comfortable with that....
