Replacing a DVD ROM drive with a DVD Rewriter

Installation info please to replace my DVD ROM unit with a DVD Rewriter i.e. NEC 3520A. There were no installation instructions supplied and some advice before I take my PC apart would be much appreciated.
Is it a straight swop as far as connections go?

Thanks in anticipation

Straight swap as far as hardware but remember you will have to install writing software.

Also make sure the drive is set as master or slave the same as the drive you are taking out

Many thanks for the responses including the S/W refs. Yes I do have an older NERO 5 installed but am about to install NERO 6. My missive to NERO seeking clarification on installing NERO 6 prior to or post DVD H/W seems to have fallen on deaf ears! Comments please?
Thanks

Uninstall nero 5 before you start the instillation then after putting you DVD writer in , install nero 6.
