We need to replace a hard drive, and I need to know what the maximum size
the system board will support. Since the old drive is toast (38.7 GB) the
only way I can get system info is through <DEL> and the BIOS; the system has
an Intel board with a 2001 manufactured date.

If I buy the drive we're looking at, Barracuda® 7200.12 Hard Drive by
Seagate, is this a good choice? Do you think my system BIOS is compatible?

Seagate is a famous brand, I'm using Seagate. Suggestions to use disk clone software to transfer data quickly into new hard drive.
