Answers :

If this is the d530cmt, do the following:
\015\012
\015\0121. Look at the front of the computer.
\015\0122. Lay the computer on it its side (should be right side).
\015\0123. Find the latch toward the back edge of the computer. It will be centered from top-to-bottom.
\015\0124. Lift the latch up and towards the back of the computer.
\015\0125. While holding the latch up, pull towards the back of the computer.
\015\0126. The side should slide back about 1 inch. Remove the side.
\015\0127. You should now be able to add your ethernet card into the computer.

Most of the time you just remove a screw and it pops out, but
\015\012some of the newer expansion slots just "snap" out, twist and bend it until it snaps and release's.
