I've got a 5400rpm in my lappy ... it's a little noisy under high load but should be quiet most of the time. It's twice as fast as the crappy 4200rpm drives.

oh, and in regards to just stickin it in there. Is that the way to go, and then just boot from the OSX tiger install disc and install the OS, or do i have to prep the drive with something?

Vanne, just run the tiger install disk. After selecting the language and its finished loading the first screen, select disk utility from the utilities menu.

You can then prep the new hdd with disk utility.
