  They are actually "torx" screws.

  Now for the real reason for this post, the most amusing quote I've
read in a while ... this inside one of the EIDE FAQs (stumbled upon 
while looking for a IDE pin-out link that was modern and not wrong).
I forgot to include in my other post...

# 7.4 A guy on the net has the same drive and he gets 33MB/s!
#      "Usenet is like a herd of performing elephants with
#      diarrhea--massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring,
#      entertaining, and a source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement
#      when you least expect it."
# -- Gene Spafford ( spaf@cs.purdue.edu ), 1992

  soon to be found in a motd near you...
