iBook G4 800MHZ replacement HD

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Hi all,

Please excuse my ignorance, as I am new to the mac world. I recently purchaced a used iBook G4 800 Mhz to start playing around with the platform.

I've been thinking about upgrading the hard drive, but have a simple question ... will any hard drive work, or are there specific hard drives for macs?

Also, once I get the drive, I assume I can just boot into my OS X cds and go from there .. is this correct?

Thanks in advance for your help.

    2.5" Hard Drive for laptops. Any brand will do. You can get 5400 or 7200 rpm drives and any capacity as long as it is a 2.5" HD (not the usual 3.5" found in desktops). And it cannot be a SATA iterface (it needs to be an ATA-6 interface), only the new MacBook Pro's are SATA.
