Just changed the starter in my daughter's '97 Aspire, two days ago. It'll help if you go buy the replacement starter prior to removing the old one. It cost me a little over $100 with a $30 core charge.
First remove the battery. You'll then need a 8mm, 12mm, and 14mm socket.
Remove the two 8mm nuts holding the starter to the bracket.
Remove the two 12mm bolts holding the bracket to the frame. Once their out, you'll have to clear the studs on the starter and pull the bracket out.
Remove the two 14mm bolts that hold the starter to the block(look at replacement starter for position).
Once these two bolts are out, undo the electrical connection (two wires) and the starter will come right out.
Reverse the process for installation.
It took me about 45 minutes to complete.
