Reopened install of IDE hd in dell 5150

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Prod [...] ccessories


I ordered this kit from Newegg, as suggested here.
The brackets are too small for my 10GB IDE drive. With S&H, I spent over $12 on a $4.00 part.

To reinstate my quandry, I wish to install a 10GB IDE hard drive from my XPS R450 computer into my dimension 5150 CPU. I have the required data and power connections. I require a method to secure this IDE drive in place.

According to the manufacturer:
-IBM DTTA-371010 E182115HG
-P/N 03L5264
-Height 1.0", Width 4.0", Depth 5.74"

I am listing data shown on the drive label itself.

Perhaps my request is unreasonable, but I prefer not to spend any more money on non-useful merchandise.

Any specific infrmation would be appreciated. I am now looking at somehow using Twist Ties to secure this drive into place.

Thanx
