    This is probably to late, but you need to remove the epoxy coating
    from the pads. The epoxy is the varnishy finish over everything.
    Gently scrape the coating off with a dental pick, or even a pocket
    knife. Your solder will then be able to stick to the pads.

    As for holes? What holes, my PS2 was all surface mount stuff. There
    were no holes. Don't start soldering untill you have all the tools,
    (SMALL soldering iron, and 30 AWG kynar wire). There are too many
    people who were in a rush and ended up with a paperweight.

    I got mine working the first time. I took my time though!

    -Good Luck
