Sorry to bother you, but I am very :confused: about how to install a hard drive for the :apple: PowerBook G3 Bronze Keyboard. What type of cable do I need for it???? :confused: Where does it plug in???? :confused: And what type of hard drive do I need to get???? :confused: I am not looking for a large capacity hard drive, perhaps a 20GB. :)

Maybe this can help: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repair/Installing-PowerBook-G3-Lombard-Hard-Drive-Replacement/47/1

Or these: http://www.ifixit.com/Browse/PowerBook_G3

And what's up with the abysmal font and colour? It makes the post harder to read, actually.

Okay... so it IS where I thought it was. Does Lombard amd Pizmo have different cables? Do I have a Lombard? Did I accidentally buy a Pizmo cable? :confused:

I don't know, if they have different cables, but the difference between "Lombard" and "Pismo" is shown here:
