Cool, that'* good progress...you have a working Battery and Starter. Now, you can do the divide and conquer approach.
A fusible link looks like nothing more than a piece of black plastic hose around the orange or red wires. They are typically near the juction block where the battery'* power gets split between the various wires going to the fuse block.
Instead of searching out the fusible links, you can go to the other end of the circuit and check for power there. If you pull the "CRANK" fuse out of the fuse block and check for voltage there, you know the power is good up to that point. Basiclly, keep splitting the circuit at various points until you track down the bad component.
You can also check the base of the ignition column, where the actual ignition switch is located (It is *not* inside the steering column with the lock cylinder and key, instead the key turns and moves a metal pushrod to the actual switch...right about were the brake pedal connects to the underside of the dash.)
