Ok, last time I lighted my jewel with a cold cathod off of a 80 mm fan. This time I'm going LEDs from 123LEDs.com. I'm getting 2 bicolor 3mm LEDs to replace the eject light, and 8 5mm LEDs for the jewel. My question is how many, and what rating resistor(s) do I need to order for the jewel LEDs? I know this is a common setup so I'm sure I could get a quick answer. I need to order soon. Any tips for doing this mod for the first time?

Learn for yourself, its the best way:

Begginers Guide to LEDs
LEDs Made Simple
Working with LEDs and Resistors

If those dont teach you how to use LEDs with resistors properly you shouldnt be trying to learn at all....
