Wiring DiMarzio SC to a 5-way or 3-way switch

Hello!
Anyone got an idea how to conect the wires of DiMarzio SC Pu's to a 5-way or 3-way switch?
I'll like to use the Malmsteen-style on a 3-way switch or the standard (no splitting) on a 5 way switch.

Thanks in advance!
Marko

Thanks, but unfortunately the dimarzio links on that site don't work.

Here's the wiring for the malmsteen strat - but not in colour...

So I have to guess which wires to connect...

Thanks. I just read somewhere that white, black and bare go together and green is ground + red goes to switch.
I thought bare is ground??? just a bit confused...

btw: ground means = connected to backside of volume poti???

THX!

green and bare are ground (back of pot)
black and white go together and tape it(what makes the to coils run in series)
red to the switch (power)
