    er you should not need to remove the star nut.

    have you read parktools?
    "Do not follow where the path may lead, Go instead where there is no path, and Leave a Trail."

    you just need to tap the steerer with a rubber mallet or piece of wood and the forks should drop out. As Nicklouse says, you don't need to remove the star nut, just undo the top cap and stem bolts. And loosen off any cables, obviously. I stupidly snapped a cycle computer cable by dropping forks out once.
    I'm only concerned with looking concerned
