Does anyone know of a guide of sorts to tell me what size screws go where when I put this thing back together?

I would be forever grateful.

Try the ifixit web site. They have step by step disassembly and assembly instructions for most portable Macs.

iFixit: iPod, iBook, & PowerBook Parts and Accessories

Also try the "powerbook medic" website. Here.

Where did the screws go when they "fell" / you dropped them?

Well, they were whisked off the table by the cat. I was able to locate most of them. I may end up buying a kit to put it back together again!

Thanks for those links, very helpful!

Yeah...those cats will do that!

Not sure where you did the work, but if you have a magnet...you could "sweep" the area with it, and maybe you'll find the missing screws.

Good luck,
