Answers :

You can use 20/40 Gb hard drives. the BIOS may be too old to support the 60/80Gb hard drive.
\015\012The only problem is, that it is impossible to purchase new hard drives of these capacities, the smallest capacity available now are 120Gb and larger.
\015\012You may be able to get 2nd hand drivers, but you won't not know how long they will work until they fail, probably doesn't matter, they should be cheap.
