Screws: Which ones go where?

I just replaced my optical drive and I was very careful to make sure not to loose any of the little screws that I removed from the exterior of my MacBook Pro, yet I have nearly 20 screws left of various sizes and dont know which ones go where. Out of the 20 screws there are 3 different sizes... most are very very small, then there are less than 5 that are just small and another group of less than 5 that are 2/3 times the length than all the rest. Ive already reconnected the ribbon cable attached to the logic board and flipped the computer upside down... This is when I realized that, well, Im screwed. When the guides refer to phillips are they referring to one specific size? My main concern is where the longer ones go because i dont want to risk damaging anything.

PS This is my first time attempting to fix my computer myself and everything was going great thanks to this wonderful site I found. The step by step guides are awesome! Ive already recommended it to a few people ;)

This is just a hunch.

If you have three very long screws then your machine is not the MacBook Pro.

If you do have any problems I can probably help. I've been into this machine over 10 times and own one.

You should have 21 screws on the table to assemble your A1211 top case MBP. Now just look at the iFixit guide here:

You should be able to mesure the screws and find their locations if not group the screws by size, take a picture with your digital camera, upload the pict here and someone will tell you their locations.
