[rescue] Today's score and a Question

Today's rescue (well, a cheap score, anyway):

G4 400 w/512MB of RAM, a legit copy of OS X 10.2,
and a 15" LCD (Compaq, eh) for $350.  Apparently 
has a dead hard drive.  Could be a dead IDE bus, 
but I'm in preliminary diagnosis at the moment (it's 
chiming, so it can't be all that bad).

If anyone is interested in buying/swapping the LCD, 
drop me a line, I'll send you the specs.

Anyway, my question...

Could someone please tell me the "standard" size of 
mounting screw for 2.5" laptop hard drives?  I need to 
get some for a laptop I'm repairing, but would rather 
track them down via the cheap avenue rather than 
the expensive (computer store) avenue.
