You can use it without a tray (commonly called a sled). I have a 4 GB drive sitting in my G3 without a sled. To keep it more stable, I just put a peice of cardboard on each side. Never had a problem with it.

Although its fixed now

Here's a place to find your 3.5 in. 8500 sled.
Tell them you need the screws, too!
There are complete installation instructions and hints on the site.
