iBook Alan key?

I have an iBook G3, and I notice there are small screw type fittings on the side of the screen.
Does anyone know if there is a tool available that would fit these screws as I need to check connections to the screen.

Thanks

Oliver

see vendor information in user profile
they're called "Torx" screws, in this case a #T8, (some folks call them "star" screws) But go to lowes or home depot & get a 6 or 8pc set, since you'll encounter more than one size if you are going beyond the lcd in your disassembly.
