Where find Computer Screws for Hard Drives?

Archived from groups: alt.comp.hardware.pc-homebuilt (More info?)

Anyone know the technical specification for the flat head small screws that
are used to screw into the side of hard drives and floppy drives. All the
screws that come with computer cases seem to be the bigger ones? Can these
be found on the Internet?

    Al,

    I've used standard 6-32 x 1/4" pan head screws for hard drives and M3 x 5mm pan
    head screws for floppy drives and CD/DVD drives with no problems.

    The tape store? If you take the alley its only a block, but if you have to
    walk around to main street, its allot further.
