Antec LANBOY I/O Panel Dismantling

Greetings,

I have just purchased the Antec LANBOY. Details of this casing is at http://www.antec-inc.com/pro_details_enclosure.php?ProdID=15000

I see that the rear I/O panel that comes with the LANBOY is latched very securedly to the case. What is the correct way to break it off so that I can fit in the I/O panel that comes with the mainboard?

Should I use force from outside the casing to push the I/O panel so that it will drop off into the inside of the casing? Or I need to use a "digger" tool (e.g. flat screwdriver) to gently pry out the I/O panel side latches to dislatch the I/O panel from the inside of the casing?

After I have done the above, is there a need to secure the mainboard I/O panel to the LANBOY casing after I have fit in the mainboard? Or just need to align properly the mainboard I/O panel with the LANBOY's rear I/O cutout?

Kindly advise.

TIA

flathead worked for me   all it is is some flanges all around the side if you look on the outside of the case there is a "lip" around that panel   just jam a flathead in between that lip and the case side and push towards the center of the io panel..... you should see the lip start to give from the case and it will just pop right out........ on installation dont be afraid to use the butt of your screw driver to smack the new io panel in plce
