Please don't tell me that there' something on the side opposite the
floppy drive that I need access to! BTW, how would I take the thing
apart to get to the PSU? Note that the CE side is against a wall.
Do you know how much the thing weighs? Is there a way to move it after
it's probably made dents in the floor, short of pyrotechnic charges?
What do you suppose is the heaviest part of it, after PSU and case?
