I have two dvd-rw drives on this box (10.3) and need to take one out.
What is the recommended procedure for safely removing this ide device?

init 6
remove power source
remove case elements necessary for access

ground case and self/or self to case

unplug wired connections
release device retaining hardware
replace removed case elements

remove self-to-case grounding

connect power
start system

afaik, has been this way for ages.
