Short out while changing battery cables?

95 mazda millenia,car worked fine until we attempted to change batt.cables,what went wrong %26amp; how do we fix it?Short out while changing battery cables?If you hooked the cables up backwards, you blew one or more fuses.

There is a Main Fuse in the engine compartment fuse block. This is a 120 amp fuse. Using a test light, check for power on both sides of this fuse.

I have also seen the alternators die quite often when this happens.
