Can I put any standard modern hard drive into my G4?

Text:

Its got the original 40gb which is full, inaccessible and unrepairable. Want to put in 2 new hd's - something bigger for the OS and a much bigger second for storage. I want to reload OS 9 and then eventually Tiger. Will also be adding a SCSI card.

Power Mac G4 M5183
