Hard-drive racks for mounting in IDE CD bays

Does anyone know 1) the name of 2) where I can get something that allow me to install a new, additional, Seagate Barracuda HD in my Dell Dimension 2500, in a spare CD drive-bay slot. There are no fixtures next to the HD, which is bolted inside a cage that is also semi-part of the chassis, so I was thinking I could mount the HD in a spare CD-drive slot, if there's such a thing to let you do that...

Any help appreciated.

Hi,
Some cases have the built-in possibility to use these slots for hard disks. You can check yours.
Or maybe the best will be to buy a movable rack and put the hard disk in it.

just get a 5-1/4 to 3.5 drive adapter, they made them for hard disks to go in 5-1/4 inch slots, and if you need rails to slide in the Dell, use the rails off the CD until you can find some more.  These drive mounts cost only about $3, that is all you need.  The HDD takes the same cable as the CD.
