Maxtor install help needed.

To fit a hard drive Maxtor's website tells me to 'Use only # 6 x 32 machine screws no longer than 6mm.'
Can anyone tell me what the '# 6 x 32' bit means?

Number 6 screw x 3.2mm I guess.They need to be short,so as not to damage inside drive.

I think you may find that the 32 means 32 threads to the inch[just googled it]
