Need some Expert advice - How do you remove a HD from a PowerMac G4 Quicksilver?
Hi, I am wondering how I go about removing my Hard Drive from my Power Mac G4 QUicksilver? I don't know the first thing about removal or location of the HD?
It is a 40GB Ultra ATA/66 (5400 rpm)
I would like to remove it and fit it with a Hard Drive case enclosure so I can use it as an extra external for backing up data.
I was told by Tiger Direct that this enclosure should work:
I would ultimately be connecting to a macmini for backing up data periodically.
Any adive or insight is much appreciated.

I replaced the hard drives in my Quicksilver a few years ago. I don't remember the details (and I don't have the computer anymore), but it wasn't too hard to figure out.
That being said, I have to seriously question using what is obviously an old HD as an external drive (especially as a backup drive). Hard drives don't last forever. If that's the stock drive from a Quicksilver, it is many years old. It's also small (40 GB) and slow (5400 RPM). If money is tight, I'd suggest getting something like this (it's only a few dollars more than the case you linked to):
