[rescue] Replacing Power Supply Fan on Catalyst 5000/5500?

I know that there are several other Catalyst 5000 users on here, so I  
thought I'd ask this question. I have a C5500 with two power supplies,  
both of which are functional but have dead fans in the front. I  
currently have a small fan pointed into one of the power supplies to  
keep it running, but that's another matter (I have another supply on  
order already). What I'm wondering is if it would be possible to open  
the supply up and replace the fans with a standard PC fan? Has anyone  
on here tried this? Any tips / pointers?
