Vinegar and Computer guts...

Does anyone know if it would be safe to put a dish of Vinegar inside
a computer? I've got a Sun Ultra 60 that smells. I've already
sprayed the foam and fans with Lysol, and I've taken bleach to the
foam as well, plus I'm getting ready to put the front (which is the
foam that smells the worst) through the dishwasher.

However, the inside of the computer smells some as well, and it's
been suggested that I stick an open dish of vinegar in/near the
computer, changing the vinegar a couple times a day for a couple
days. I'm slightly nervous about this as Vinegar is 5% acidic.

I'm just afraid to have the system in the house, and power it up
until I get the smell beat down thanks to my allergies.
