Dell Vostro 220

i was gifted the above pc, and I am trying to open the side panel but having a hard time, maybe I just do not know how.  Is there any video showing how one opens the side panel.  I have unscrewed the 2 black screws holding the panel, and tried sliding the panel out and I am not sure whether I am doing right or not but it does not budge, and I do not want to damage anything, so I stopped short.  So a video to show how, might work.  I am trying to install a new DVD and also firewiire pci card.  Thank u.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


I remember an XPS I worked with being very hard to remove as well.
