Powersupply Issue with Intel Motherboards

I am having a problem with an older Intel motherboard. The motherboard, ATX which takes Pentium Socket 370. Requires 2 power connections.
One main one, and an auxiliary 6-pin cable. I bought an Antec case and inserted the board. The Antec case has the 6-pin power cable that fits, but it doesn't work! Is there 2 kinds of the 6-pin auxiliary cables? The 6-pin cable from the old case looks the same... Help!!!

Have to post solution here. There is none.
Dell made a deal with Intel to produce custom motherboards that will only work in Dell PC cases.
So I am stuck with the Dell case. Got that info from Antec staff.
