FWIW, (and the archives....)

You pull them straight off. Hard. Harder than you'd probably like to.

Of course, I did end up pulling not only the power supply, the
backplane, the lower cardcage tray, and the lower fan tray.

After that, there isn't much left. But w/ some help from the wife it
was carried back downstairs w/ out much difficulty.

Now I wonder if I can put "Humpty-Dumpty" all back together again.. :-)
