You'll have to open up your Aero - the battery is about the size and shape
of a dime, located (as I recall) almost dead center on the system board.
You can use an x-acto knife/small screwdriver/paper clip to pop it out.

Also, shorting across the contacts once the battery is removed is how you
clear the CMOS on the unit.

(I guess my suggestion of using an x-acto knife/small screwdriver/paper
clip to remove it doesn't inspire confidence eh?)
