    This type of hole is generally designed for like a nut on a bolt. You
    insert the nut end into the bigger hole, slide to the smaller end,
    then tighten.

    RtS... when will you admit that you don't know diddlysquat about
    computers? Those slotted holes for plastic standoffs have been around 25
    years now.

    Yes, these holes were on all the older cases and took a plastic
    fitting that clipped into the relevant hole on the main board and slid
    into place using thes oval type holes (the blue ones in your pix).
    The red ones take a small brass bush which screws into that red hole
    and then either a 2 or 3mm (case size) screw which goes throgh the
    mainboard and locks everything into place. If you do have any of the
    bits call into a computer shop and ask them, they may charge you a
    dollar or two. If you need the screws do not forget to ask for them
    also.
