I think it shouldn´t be a problem to install a 60 or 80GB drive to your machine since the chipset should be able to take such big drives.
A advice before installing a new drive: update your bios to the newest version since they would enable some better support for big drives.

In case of some other questions, just ask.

And buy a 2,5" PARALLEL ATA harddisk!

You can by any HDD IDE/ATA 9.5mm drive. The fastest/best is a 7200 1/min drive from Hitachi, e.g.: Hitachi Travelstar 7K100 100GB (HTS721010G9AT00)

Thanks apco. Great info! :) Have you test it on your Tecra? I hope you didn't notice any problems there.
