Your original hard drive is an IDE ATA 100 Samsung 60Gig hard drive. The intended replacement is a Samsung SATA II 250Gig hard drive.
Looking at the 'base specifications" for your Presario 6000 shows an Intel ICH2 hard drive controller that only "runs" IDE hard drives.
To be able to install your replacement you would need an "add-on" SATA controller plugged into your PCI slot to be able to use your 250Gig drive.
An add-on SATA controller can be sourced from such places as Tigerdirect, Global Computer, Newegg, etc, etc....
If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.
