I have an old motherboard laying around and I want to put together a PC from spare parts. It is a PII 266Mhz with 128MB RAM. All that I really need is a new HD and I saw some pretty cheap ones at the computer shows. Is there any specs that I should be aware of when buying a HD for my older motherboard?

If your MB is suitable to run a P11 CPU you should have no problems with compatability with a new HD in the 2+ GB size. The only problems I have had is when I install a multi GB HD to a MB of P1 or older vintage. Some HD's wont work but you can download a program from their HD maker to fix anyway.
