heh.  replacing DIMM in a box might be harder than a laptop.

be confident enough to apply enough force to get the thing into the
slot and the clips to pop into position.  be timid enough not to crack
the DIMM in half.

i like to call it using "gentle force".

also, be aware that DIMMS have a notch that prevents you from installing
them backwards.  if it doesn't go in with "gentle force", make sure you
have the DIMM notch aligned with the boss (the opposite of a notch)
inside the DIMM slot.
