I have been given a old laptop a Clevo 980 ( 10 years old)running Windows 98.
The hard drive is only 3GB Ultra-ATA/33 4000rpm and i am looking to replace it with a bigger hard drive around 20GB.
Does anyone know if a ATA-100 would fit and work on such a old system or would there be issues?
Any advice greatly appreciated.

It would fit and work but would run at 33 as that is the speed of your IDE controller.
