    I don't know the size by name, but as long at their not the real
    short stubby ones, and the the screws with the giant heads, I've
    alwasy just use plain old hard drive screws.

  3. 6-32 UNC

    Sun uses Torx head screws, this is not really necessary, but
    Phillips head is nice. Here is the word from Seagate about screws:

    Four (4) 6-32 UNC-2A screws are required for installation. Maximum
    screw length into side of drive is 0.15 inches (3.81 mm). Maximum screw
    length into bottom is 0.20 in. (5.08 mm). Screw tightening torques is 8.0
    lb-in (.90 NM) max with minimum thread engagement of 0.12 in (3.00 mm).
