Hi Noel,

hehe, I had exactly the same problems a year ago and also found all this information on how to install the RA8x drive, but not how to _uninstall_ it :)
You actually have to unskrew four screws which hold the slides against the chassis. Two screws on each side, if I recall corretly. Not sure on the exakt total amount of screws anymore, though. The slides are hold by brackets, so the slides are completely removed from the drive's chassis.
