Will do - give me a day or so for the photos.  Here's the actual bracket (previous photo was of similar one):

Will take BOTH a 3.5 and 2.5 drive, one either side, if you mount it upside down in the optical bay!

I should have also mentioned that my IcyDock adapter was for a slim optical drive and two 2.5" HDDs.

 

If you're willing to do without an optical drive, IcyDock makes a 5.25" bay adapter that will fit four 2.5" HDDs.

 

So, with a RAID controller like the SmartArray P410, you could have eight drives internally (four 3.5", four 2.5") in your N40L.

OK, here are the pix of my setup - using that bracket above (upside down) with BOTH a 2.5" and a 3.5" drive mounted on it (on short pillars, to get some cooling clearance):
