Here is the guide to replace the optical drive with a hdd or ssd.

Installing iMac Intel 20" EMC 2133 and 2210 Dual Hard Drive

Your iMac will need a ATAPI enclosure like this one:

If you take that info and look for the equivalent on iFixit this is what you will find:

12.7 mm PATA Optical Bay SATA Hard Drive Enclosure

I do appreciate the time you took to answer my question.

But your link says it's for a mac Mini not a Mid 2007 / 2 GHz Core 2 Duo processor desktop. I'm still stuck with no answer.

I just edited my answer and added links to the proper enclosure. I did a quick search on your iMac and found that the one in the guide will not work as its SATA and not ATAPI.
