How can I make a LED backlight for my laptop screen? Answered

I want to replace the CFL backlight on my laptop with a LED backlight. Anyone know how to go about doing this. I have some electronics and soldering experience.

 My apologies to the above poster, but at least this guy has found a way:
( copy / paste doesn't work.  How nice...)

I searched for about 15 minutes trying to find this again.  Finally showed up on Digg from Feb 2007.

I'm dismantling my laptop screen right now - just need some hot glue, led's, wire and probably more stuff.

For your kind information, currently you don't have a CFL back light but it is only fluorescent light. It is not possible to change it to LED back light as it will need SMD abd advanced technology. There are some notebooks with LED screens.
