You can find the schematic and layout documents here:

75 Ohm and the correct size are the critical bits. Resistor tolerance 
shouldn't be an issue. I think the size is 0402 but you can check this by 
measuring (ruler, magnifying glass) before you buy, or hope someone who 
actually knows replies ;-)

Here's one of many smt tutorials on the net. These won't be the easiest bits 
to start with though! If you've got a broken old motherboard or HDD to 
practice on it would be well worth doing.
