Just got a nice working 5155 by way of eBay. I feel inadequate in my nerdliness right now, because I can't seem to find an obvious way to get the case off. What do I have to do here? Is there a trick to it, or am I as dumb as I think I am?

Dumb as I think I am: confirmed. Six screws around the front by the monitor and floppy. Feel free to delete this thread, unless maybe somebody searching Google could find it useful in the future.

Don't feel bad -- I had to ask jj_pearce how to open mine up. I think since then the 5155 hardware maintenance manual has showed up on the 'net, but I couldn't find it when I wanted to open mine.

Yeah the screws aren't easy to notice at first. I wish there was room for a NIC in there, but I stuck a six pak plus and a hard drive in. Only room left for very short cards.
