    So you have a Cf-28 but the Hard drive is 20gb and you want 80gb. So I have made this as a guide.
    Step one: Open the back panel with the release sliders.
    Step 2: remove hard drive caddy with pulling up the tab then push and pull on one of each tabs
    Step 3 unscrew the screws with a size 1 (?) Philips-head and pull up the caddy
    Step 4 pull out the hard drive and replace with the other hard drive and do this process in reverse order.

    It's been a while since I have been around a 28 but I think the antenna is for CDMA service ??

    There were 2 kinds of antennas on later CF-28s: cell (CDMA?) and wifi "B". The cell were common for police car use, but from what I saw the wifi was pretty rare. It was a Cisco card in a PC card slot hidden under the keyboard. I think the wifi was mainly used to connect to a CF-VDW07 wireless display using proprietary software that only runs under WinXP or Win2K. I still have a working setup like this . . .

    I remember I had to turn off that hidden WiFi to get my added wireless card to work.

    I think that the antenna Is for the wireless card (see attached photo). The 27 also has the antenna so it might be the wireless card
