I just installed a new hard drive in my macbook..
 
i have a late 07 macbook 2.1, ghz, 4gb ram, and just installed a new 250gb hd because other one went out. i dont have any of the disks or anything as i bought it used and the didnt have it. im thinking about buying leopard install disk from craigslist..is that all i would need? or would there be other disks i need besides the leopard install..? thanks

As far as installing the Mac OS...yes the Leopard disk is all you need.

Obviously if you had other programs installed...you would need the disks for those applications as well.

If you buy the discs used, make sure it is a black retail disc and not a grey disc. Otherwise, you may be left with an OS X disc that won't let you complete the install.
