You need to use the cylinder head screws in the little bags. One per drive. On the right side of the optical and left side of the HDD viewed from teh front of the case. If you do this and select the right hole in the drive, you can slide the drives in and out and they will click into place. No need to use the outboard permanent screw holes at all.
I like my skeleton. I'm running a Phantom 500 PSU in it and my older P4 system with a passive radiator on the CPU. Only downside is my crappy Nvidia 7800 board sounds like a jet aircraft taking off when I spool up a game, and the Nvidia drivers turn the fan off or on, but don't regulate it in between the extremes.
