[olug] Hard Drive Addition to a Compaq Deskpro

I have Linux running on  a Compaq Deskpro PII/III that has a 3 gig HD. 3 
gig is barely adequate for my needs. I've looked at it and can't quite figure 
out how to add a hard drive into the system. Does anyone have experience with 
this type of setup? If so, can you give me a clue as to where to look? 
The HD chassis seems to be down under the CD or the FD. Is there a front 
panel opening (I didn't take the face plate off-- at the time I didn't 
think about it)? I'd really rather not take it to a shop if I don't have 
to as I'd have to reset the internet access to my M$ box  -- a royal pain!

I really appreciate that there's a group like this I can turn to when  I 
have an ignorant newbie question!
