Taking it that you have a MacBook not previous powerbook or iBook
If you want to keep every thing you will need to clone your current hard drive
My suggestion is to get a cheap external enclosure USB SATA (20$)
put your new hard drive in it (yes you will need a new hard drive).. and Use SuperDuper to clone your existing
hard drive. it is very simple and straight forward to use.
was and I think still free to clone.
then after it reboots to the external drive test every thing out .. then
put it in to your MacBook and you are ready to go.. right where you left off.
