Regarding upgrades of Ti's and Al's...  My boss finally got her 120  
GB HD (and my 100 GB drive showed up, too).  Putting the 120 in the  
Ti was relatively simple - take screws off back, take off bottom,  
separate the HD's connector plug from the socket (the hardest part),  
remove screws holding HD in case.  Repeat in reverse using new hard  
drive.  Done.

The Aluminum (my 17-inch PB G4 Lunchtray Deluxe) seems substantially  
harder.  I have the manual and I have the instructions from PBFixit.   
MANY more screws all over the place, all different lengths - I have  
printed up a screw sheet for this - plus disconnecting the logic  
board ZIF connector.  This doesn't look like fun, but the extra 40 GB  
will be worth it (doing this today, big coincidence, this thread  
is).  This doesn't look as harrowing as the HD upgrade I did on my  
wife's iBook/500.  Pages and pages of instructions, even more  
screws.  I must have done a good job on that one because I only had  
one screw left over!

Anyway, wish me luck!  A-voiding I will go!
