Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

I happened to find a PDF on compaq's support site: if you use Ctrl+F in your web browser and put in DC5100MT it will take you down to the right place. Simply open this PDF if your favorite viewer and there's a whole series of images explaining how to take the panel off (page 4).
