As for installing the HD and the optical drive, read through this PDF:

Here is a good choice, it's an ATA 2.5" drive that will fit. $84.99

250GB, it's huge for a laptop.

Great price and will last you until this machine is obsolete. It was also the least expensive one I could find. These ATA drives are a lot less prevalent than the newer SATA drives.
