The PPC version of the miniMac uses a 2.5" Ultra ATA Drive. Here is one from this site:

160 GB 5400 RPM Western Digital ATA Hard Drive (New)

The repair instructions are here:

Mac mini (PowerPC) Hard Drive Replacement

Do not get carried away with buying a fast 7200 spin drive as the PPC Mini Mac will not be able get get much of an added boost from the extra speed. A 5400 spin drive is good.
