    haha of course. Link
    If you are trying to get this really soon, you can check local stores for external usb storage enclosures which house 2.5" HDs and then convert them to USB, and use an external psu.

    If you can, take the HD that you are not sure is working and put it in one of the laptops that is definitely working

    nevermind i found it

    accepts 2.5-inch,
    12.7 mm hard disk drive

    with stock bios it find 30 gig hdd, but with the reflash im wanting to do it finds 40 gig.

    also planning on putting some more ram into this puppy, right now it has 32 mb onboard ram, but has 2 expansion slots that are free... 288 mb anyone. lol.

    i think that if i can get the boot to start up tonight, i can have this all done by january... if everything works out of course. ill start a worklog tonight when i get home, to chronicle this install. pics will be included tonight.

    plus i will add a link to this post in the worklog, so everyone can refer back.... see yall tonight.

    Later
