Have not done it in a while but from what I can remember its real easy just take the old one out and swop over and put it in, when you next turn the PS3 on I think it asks to format the hard drive (to PS3 format)
The only problem your going to have is making a backup of your save games (I did this using a sd card), and anything else you might have on (movies etc) once you have sorted this out it should be easy.

Yep, I agree with all of this. I've done it a few times with my fat PS3. Make sure you use the backup utility to create a backup to a different disk. Swap out the drive, and start the system. It should format automatically. I think I remember having to update the firmware manually, but I may be wrong. After it's done doing it's thing, restore from your backup. It'll be just like it was before you started!
