Is hdd a straight drop in??

I own 0761-3pg since April2006.
Now I feel like replacing 80gb hdd with WD 250 and upgrade to Vista.
Is hdd a straight drop in and then run recovery CDs or a complex thing for an computer illitrate. I did RnR once and am confident.
Also, I want to make partitions on my hdd so that in case of viral infection, I have only to do C:/ only, instead of whole RnR.
I've got XP pro and Vista Ultimate discs with me.

How can I copy various softwares from c100 for incase
Thanks in advance for your support.

A hard drive is easily replaceable. In your case, you have to purchase a PATA hard drive. If you haven't already, you should create recovery disks for your laptop via the appropriate preinstalled software.
