What type of hard drive do I need?

I am about to replace the HD in my PowerBook due to the factory one dying. I am currently shopping online and am coming across lots of different types. Does anyone know what type of HD I need? (for example ATA, SATA, etc...) My system is a PowerBook G4 Aluminum 17" 1.67GHz (High-Res). Thank you.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

A ATA, IDE, EIDE will work, just stay away from the SATA drives. For a speed boost go to a 7200 RPM drive, runs a little hotter.
