Replacing the Hard Drive in a Dell Vostro A860 Laptop

I have a Dell Vostro A860 Laptop.  I need to replace the hard drive in the unit but I cannot find any documentation or procedure on how to do it.  Does anyone know how to replace the drive in these units?

That's a painful design for a laptop.  Most manufacturers provide a separate cover that will expose the HDD.  Having to take the whole thing apart just to replace a HDD is not a good design.
