Default RE: need some help car won't start

ok so i just red up on what this starter and solenoid all do.
the battery is connected to the solenoid which is connected to the starter motor. the solenoid uses littler power threw smaller cables to accomplish better energy flow threw smaller wires. the ignition switch is connected to the solenoid also so when you turn the key it allows energy to go from the battery to the starter motor which moves the pistons and ignites the spark plugs. and on the battery the negative side is grounded to the ground. also on the solenoid there is 2 plugs on which there is only one with one thing touching it ( which would be the grounded one). and there is ALSO a ground wire on the starter motor (which is the the part i don't remember seeing on mine. i only remember the one plug attached to the distributor and on plugin rectangle thing with wires coming out of it.)

So with the solenoid it should have one plug with only one wire attached to it (the ground wire). the other plug with a few things (one being the battery,one connected to the starter, what else?). and one wire that is a bit different (sort of plugs on like the distributor cap) which is the igniton?

The starter has one wire on the top of it connecting to the distibutor? and one rectangle chip thing connecting what?

Do i have any of this or am i just wasting both peoples times? lol any help appreciated, i know this is such noobish questions but im trying to figure this out lol.
