Is possible to upgrade my clamshell Blueberry's HD to this 40Gb model?

Since I'm leaving at Germany and iFixit is currently not selling hard drives for iBook clamshell, I found two another options:

But are any of these HDs compatible with my clamshell?

Actually I have no clue about it. Mactracker says that my clamshell uses ATA-2 HDs, and I saw many Ultra ATA HDs. Are they compatible too?

Also I don't understand how ATA-2 is related (or not) to ATA100.

I'm a complete dummy about this, and will appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance

Vielen Dank Markus,

These two other websites +/- pointed me in the right direction:

But you confirmed this with different sources. Great!

PS: The weather at Bremen is also nice.
