    Im looking to expand the HDD space in my Powerbook G3....it has an 8GB now, and it needs to be bigger...im trying to avoid the external HDD route.

    I plan on doing a fresh install of OS9 soon and i would like to swap at the same time.....

    What brands should i look at?
    Speeds?
    Specs?

    Im new to the mac world....what are the commonly used mac hardware links?

    Seems to be kinda rough to find out anything about these things....maybe im just looking in the wrong places

    iFixit.com has directions and parts.
    guides link.
    It's a good place to start.
    Use a tray to story your screws.
    Get all the proper tools ahead of time.
