it was so easy.

I built my first PC when I was about 15 and I didn't know crap about computers.

Basically if it doesn't fit in the slot then it doesn't go there.

However, if you do not have the proper tools that is where you get into trouble. Anti-static mat, anti-static wrist band and appropriate tool kit

depends what your "grounding" to, its the charge differential that causes static discharges.

Gournd yourself and the bag the component is in to the case, preferably use a wrist wrap. Roll up your sleaves.
You can also prepare your work surface with antistatic wipes/sprays.
