CMOS Battery Location

I am trying to replace the CMOS battery, but I can't seem to find its location?  Do you know where the CMOS Battery is located on a Thinkpad A30?

This link has the info you're looking for.  IBM calls it the backup battery.  It's on page 79.

After you open the case and remove whatever daughter card is there, you should see the batter clipped in a little bracket, from what I can tell.

Look for the cable plug into the board as shown in the picture on page 79.  That will lead you to the battery.
