On some models there's also a vacuum reservoir (looks like a ball) - on mine it's behind the battery, not easily seen.
Unless your car has had the pipes replaced, they'll be a black rubber covered in cotton. The pipe from your fat plastic vacuum line splits via non-return valves IIRC to feed the others. If I can I'll post a picture later today...

The other branch runs up to the egr control solenoid where it connects to a rubber splitter - one branch to the lower connection on the solenoid and one heading off to the same point on the N75 for the turbo. This is connected via a non-return valve. Another splitter here goes one to the n75, and the other to the vacuum reservoir.
My car has been messed around with a bit before I got it, so not an absolute guide, and I've taken photos but not clear enough to be useful really.
Unless your line is the one which goes into thin plastic, you should find the missing connection on the bottom of the egr solenoid valve via the rubber splitter (connection is conveniently placed behind it so it can't be seen, only felt!)

Hope this helps...
