You can install an ATA/IDE 2.5" drive. If under 128 GB you will have no problems. Your Book will have problems seeing anything over 128 GB. Use the link Markus gave for the drive selection. Here's the instructions on replacing it: iBook G3 12" Hard Drive Replacement

Many many thanks for your replies!

You're saying any ATA/IDE 2.5" drive under 128 GB will do? Will a 7200 RPM drive be faster?
