extra cable coming from positive battery wire - need Pics ASAP!

i am wrapping up the re-install and only have a couple of things left.

one of them is an extra cable coming from the positive battery wire. the postive wire comes from the starter to the battery clamp. this other wire comes from the battery clame to an eyelet wire fitting (sorry not using proper terms).. i am not sure where it goes.. does it go to the firewall? or to the engine block?

edit:
i have come to find out that the wire goes to the starter relay that is on the firewall.. however, the fsm that i have for my old 87 has a different relay set up. the wire goes from the battery to one side of the relay and the out of the other side of the relay to the starter.

MY setup on my 88 (I6) goes from the battery directly to the starter. a second wire goes from the battery to the relay (i think) and then there is a green wire that plugs into the slot on the relay and hooks up to the starter.. i would like a picture to confirm.. the guy from the engine shop is coming by tomorrow to break in the motor so i need to know where it goes.

IF ANYONE HAS A PIC OF THIS PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!

thanks!

on my 95 it goes to a box of fuses and relays mounted right in front of the battery. if it comes off the positive cable, and you hook it to the firewall or the block, theres going to be lots of sparks.

i am thinking it is for the starter solenoid.. there are like 4-5 green wires attached to a stud, and i think i put the wire there and tighten it down.

LOL! yeah, i meant if it goes to something on the firewall or block.. not directly to them.. would be kinda funny to see - but not on my $2500 rebuilt engine.

It may be for the fog lights. Does it have an inline fuse?
