Relax, the hardest part will be actually installing the Hard Drive. Once you have that done installing the OS is extremely easy. Just boot of the install disks that came with you computer or whatever OS installation disk you have. From there you just need to follow the prompts and it will be done in around 30-40 mins. Good luck.

Just follow one of the iFixit.com Powerbook guides. It's a great site - I've used it twice to replace my powerbook HDD. Couldn't be simpler. I'd advise you print out their document that keeps your screws in order as you take them out .
Each man's death diminishes me, for I am involved in mankind. Therefore, send not to know for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee.
