Removing G4 MDD logic board?

Can anyone point me to a thread or youtube walkthrough for removing a G4 MDD dual 867 logic board? (including how to remove the CPU daughter card).

I have the heat sink off and all my RAM and PCI cards out, but am stuck and don't want to guess.

Thanks... I got one from 666sheep. Now I'm just trying to figure out a good, inexpensive multimeter to buy to test voltages.

So I got the logic board out and noticed several HUGE clumps of dust underneath, the largest being right under the RAM DIMM slot area.

Could balls of dust short something causing a no boot situation and if so, now that I've cleaned it, should I reassemble the computer and try to power it on again?

I'm in the same situation as Kirkboss. Can someone send me documentation on switching out a logic board on a dual mdd g4?
