HEre's the IFixIt guide on how to replace your HD HD replacement. Most of the current drives now are SATA-III I/O make sure to check to see if they can be reset to SATA-II via a jumper, otherwise you will have problems.

You may want to also upgrade your memory if you still have only 512MB installed. Here's the guide to do that Upgrading RAM memory
