3.5" hard disk into 5.25" bay

Hi, I realise this is a very basic question but can someone enlighten me as to how to mount a 3.5" hdd into one of the empty 5.25" bays I have in my new case? Thank you

Marvelous, thank you so much. Is it not a problem that there's no fan keeping this arrangement cool apart from the one on the side of the case?

Air flow round the drive should be fine,get a couple of 80mm fans for the back if you're concerned about heat.. Air flow through a case is supposed to be from the bottom at the front to the back at the top (if you see what I mean). I have a similar arrangement with a 250GB Maxtor - but no fans other than the PSU and CPU ones required so far.
