<VV> Help! Ignition Messed UP

Hi all...I'm in the middle of installing A/C in my car, and so far, everything that can go wrong, has gone wrong!

Now somehow I messed up my plug wires and ignition wires.  There is an insulated "resistor" wire, that goes on one side of the coil.  Then I see a yellowish-gold wire, it came loose from its terminal and I can't figure out where this wire goes, but it looks like another ignition wire.  Doesn't that go on the coil also?

Also, what's the best and easiest way to determine how to put the distributor wires back correctly?  I have the firing order right, and I've gotten the notch on the vibration damper pulley within the timing scale on the block, but I've tried to put both #1 and #2 wires at the terinal where the rotor's pointing.  The car backfires and almost starts, but won't.

Help!  And thanks everyone.  Hope you're all having a great Forth!
