    hey I have an IBM thinkpad r50p and it only has 19 gigs, which is weird
    I also have a diamondmax 80gb ata/133 hdd
    any way of connecting the two, like taking the laptop apart and hooking it up or what
    I dont know very much about hardware

    Laptop hard drives are smaller than regular hard drives. You COULD use that hard drive, but it would have to be in a separate case, and you wouldn't be able to boot up from it.
