Here's my method of connecting a second 'compatible reset-button':

Turn OFF your Falcon. Open your tower. Use some kind of ohm-meter to
measure resistance of capacitors close to upper left corner of Falcon
motherboard (i.e. close to place of original reset button). Capacitors
have usually a very high resistance ( -> oo), but when you press the
original reset button, the resistance of one of those capacitors goes to
0. When you find the capacitor, simply connect wires from your
tower-button to that capacitor.

I hope you get what I've been trying to tell you. If not, ask again.
