It's not the hard drive, it's more likely to be that you're running Leopard on 512 MB or RAM, which needs more RAM. Of course, there could be a deeper problem, such as bad RAM in general, but not having enough RAM will produce a lot of slowdowns and potentially lockups, but, once again, I can't rule out some other problem in this situation. The beep(s) would indicate bad RAM, so I'd have to go with the RAM... potentially both slots are actually failing... I dunno...

the powerbooks of that time had a problem called upper ram slot failure.
the ram slot failed, not the ram itself. try putting your ram in the other slot and see if it's better. if it is better go to a apple store, maybe it's under warranty (mine was).
aside of that replace your ram with at least a 1GB stick.
