I recently did this, but it depends on the power supply.  One I had had
the fan riveted in, so it was not easy to replace.  Another problem is
that the fans can vary in size, although they are generally the same. 
First see if you can get the power supply open and the fan out without
destroying it.  Then take the fan to a computer shop and see if they can
match it up.
