Can I replace my superdrive with an SSD?

I have a 2008 Macbook Pro 15" and would like to add an 120 GB SSD to replace my superdrive.
Is this possible?
If yes, do I need an adaptor?


PS: I'm interested in installing an OCZ 120GB Limited Edition which is on sale for $120. Is this a good deal?

search for "optibay" in ebay.
Buy one of the cheap ones and you are good to go.
You might want you get some decent screw driver if you don't have any. Without some ones that fit well you risk damaging the screws. Seems a no brainer but occasionally there are these people that wear down the screws so much that nobody can ever unscrew them again.
