    How do I replace a key on a Pismo PowerBook?

    I, stupidly, decided to switch to Dvorak on my PowerBook(well, borrowed, but...) and because I've done that on other laptops before, I thought that it would be easy peasy. Pop off, move around, push back on.

    Not so. Luckily, I only did one key, and its a key that isn't used frequently(the Z), but I can't get the darn thing back on! I managed to take the scissors out of the keyboard(which i can tell ain't good), and it looks like the one half has to slip in underneath the little metal hook, but I can't get it in there.

    Does anybody know how to do this?

    I figured it out!

    I just had to use my fingernail to jam the sucker in there. Once that was accomplished, the rest was simple.

    For anyone else who might try to accomplish this - this pdf is awesome. It explains the whole process very well, in my book.
