I did it in mine it was a bear but if you follow this guide here: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repair/iBook-G4-12-Inch-800-MHz-1-2-GHz-Hard-Drive-Replacement/166/1
And keep track of all the screws it is doable. :) wasn't too hard for me but then again I had taken it apart before.

Seems a bit much for me.I tend to animal things that get stuck.So i'll try to find a place to replace it.(For a reasonable cost)I am on a fixed income and it's for my grandaughter.

Thank You

Mike
