Toshiba Satellite laptop - FreeBSD

I was thinking of getting a spare hard disk for a Toshiba Satellite laptop (Pentium 3 with 256MB). Does anyone have any good or bad experiences? It runs Knoppix perfectly well....

    I was thinking of getting a spare hard disk for a Toshiba Satellite
    laptop (Pentium 3 with 256MB). Does anyone have any good or bad
    experiences? It runs Knoppix perfectly well.

    Do you just want a bigger disk?

    If so, then go for it - although if the disk is buried in the
    laptop, it's worth it to pay someone else to install it as you
    aren't going to have the tools to take it apart, nor are you going
    to have the instructions on how to get it apart.

    I need to keep the existing Windows configuration intact on the old
    disk, but would also like to try FreeBSD on this machine.

    The disk seems to be designed to be easily removed in this model - there
    are just two s to undo, and it unplugs as a sealed unit. I took
    the old one out and put it back in with no trouble, and it still worked
    normally.
