I don't have a handy link to pictures, but you should do two things:

(1)  Replace your IDE and floppy cables with round cables  (you can buy round ones from www.newegg.com or many other online supplies).

(2)  Buy some cable ties, and simply tie the cables in neat runs.

You can't "hide" them -- but you CAN make them neat, and keep them out of the way of the good airflow I'm sure you'd like to have in your case.

Here is a side view of my case, http://www.silverstonetek.com/products/tj06/interior/tj06.jpg
I also have a silverstone powersupply. This powersupply lets me take out unused wires which is already done.

What you can do is if the cable is long is to wrap it around the bottom side of the case. What I usually do is to get longer cables, run them behind the drives and behind motherboard/mb tray (if the space permits) and then back out again next to the connector.

For those loose wires, I group them together using a wire loom (An example - http://www.ocmodshop.com/tidy/mobopsu.jpg)
