Replace a Gateway Laptop LCD?

My girlfriend's Gateway T-6836 just fell. Her screen is broken and she called me in tears. I found a replacement screen, but will it work? And how can I replace it?

Here's the screen I found: link
Any ideas on how to get to taking this thing apart and replacing the screen? What potential problems might I run into? Should it be as simple as opening up the LCD, unplugging the broken screen and pluggin in the new one?
Obviously there could be other problems, but I figured I'd start with the screen. I work in IT and am not afraid to get my hands dirty, but I've never had to replace a laptop screen... Help?
