	You don't. Nobody touched it.

	What I know of hardware would go in a gnat's eye. But when the 
tech unscrewed the two little screws and took the back plate off (NB : 
voiding the warranty), the memory stick slipped out and the new one in, 
just like in any other computer.

	With a slight push at the exposed corner, the card comes far 
enough out to pull the rest of the way, and the  new one slips in. 

	No soldering iron need apply.

	I should certainly try something like that, especially while I'm 
checking out umpteen distros; some of them might be able to use those -- 
assuming you give each its own partition??
