You didn't tell us the "specific" specs of your computer (i.e. the exact model)...but this would probably be a good place to start:

Find the latest Performance Upgrades, Firewire and USB Hard Drives, SATA, Memory, Laptop Battery, and more at OWC

Hope this helps,

Hey the PowerBooks G4's use normal 2.5 laptop ide hard drives .. you should be able to get one at your local MicroCenter or Fry's (seeing that you are in TX) I have not change a hard drive on these yet so if you dont know how check out iFixit: Apple Mac, MacBook, iPod, and iPhone Repair Parts first.
