    It's only like unscrewing 3 screws so it should not be too difficult.

    I'm pretty sure you just do it, then pop in the OSX install disk and do a clean install (that should also format it correctly etc)

    my sticks are not paired :o and it runs like a dream... make sure they are in there nice and tight. When I first installed mine, i had trouble getting htem secure in their slot (mainly because you have to push hard as hell for htem to go in, and i didn't want to use brute force on my new macbook), which caused all kinds of issues while booting.
