It is better to buy the terminator from an shop in the corner since the hardware that you are dealing is as cheap as an IDE hardrive and an terminator is very cheap.

To connect them is very simple, each device that you connect on the bus including the controller must have an ID and must unique ID in the BUS so you must choose ID 1, 2 ,3, 4 and so on for each device, usually the controller has the 7, so just connect all the devices to the cable and put the terminators in the ends of the cables.

So it is simple.

I have not used this before, this why I asked for a link that has pictures.

well since there are no pictures, let me see if I have an idea about the concept.

There should be a SCSI controller card inserted in the motherboard, from this controller card If I want to have 3 or 6 or 12 SCSI disks plugged to it , how can I have the cables plugged  to it, since the controller might have only one connector.
