CD wise you either go aftermarket with a XP installation discs, or call Lenovo and they will charge you for it.
The harddrive option is limited to say the least.
Have a read...

I see that the fujitsu 120GB/160GB drives are basically the only options other the an OEM drive, but i'm confused about the ATA, SATA and PATA.....? Which one do I need for my t43p?
This is an example the specs of one of the fujitsu 120GB's I found would this be compatable with my t43p?

The laptop was built by IBM, but when the T43 was built IBM thinkpad was in transition from IBM to Lenovo, so it is likely that when Lenovo took over, there was still lot of T43 that is left unsold or in the process of been constructed.... so this is why Lenovo stickers were there.
But T43 still need PATA hdd that is described in the link that i have provided.
