There was an earlier thread on it. Is it's a 411 box you need to stick a
paperclip into two holes, one on each side of the box, about an inch from
the back. There's an internal clip which holds the lid down.
I think we need to post some pictures of that somewhere.

Thanks, any ideas for the external drive? I can't figure out how to get the
plastic case off of that. It looks like it should lift up, but I can't
figure out how to get it to do that (without breaking the case that is).
