this is the general info -

When wiring an LED you have three options
a) wire each LED single with its own resistor
b) wire multiple LED's in Series with a single resistor
c) wire multiple LED's in Parallel with a single resistor

as for computing the value of the resistor... it would depend on the input voltage and the specs requirements of the LED that you will use.

maybe you will get some info from this - http://metku.net/index.html?sect=view&n=1&path=mods/ledcalc/index_eng
