Go to MacSales and use their little wizard.

NewEgg.com is a great store, make sure you get a 2.5" laptop drive with a ATA-6 interface for your powerbook (NOT SATA, it will not work).
I like and have good luck Seagate drives

I trust Seagate drives more than any other but OtherWorld Computing (http://eshop.macsales.com/) has just about every notebook drive available. They can likely install it if you ship the machine to them, as they already install DVD writers.

I put a Seagate 5400.3 (160GB, 5400rpm, perpendicular) in my 1.25GHz PowerBook and I'd say it feels like a 20% increase in performance. It's dead silent (in a good way ;) ) and no heat issues. Add the 5 year warranty to boot! I have nothing but good things to say about NewEgg by the way...that is where I got mine over a year ago! I installed it myself - not too hard for someone comfortable with hardware. If not you, perhaps a friend?
