Converting a steam radiator to hot water

I finally found the L shaped radiator that I've been looking for to put behind my bathtub. YAY! But it's steam, not hot water. Boo!

It has large "plugs" at all four corners, and my intention is to take two of them out and hook up it up to my hot water lines. But here's my question - where to put the input and output?

Top corners? In at the bottom, out at the top? in at the top, out at the bottom?bottom corners?
