It's very easy. There's a lot of information on the internet, this link provides all the steps in detail and was the one I used as a reference.

Essentially, when shopping for a replacement HDD, look for the following atributes: SATA, 2.5 inch, 5200 rpm HDD, use shopping comparision site for competitive prices. I fitted a WD 250Gb in minutes, didn't bother to back up data as I only had the PS3 a couple days, and just allowed the PS3 to do what it needed to do. I only went for WD as their pricing was compeitive, so please dont take that as a recommendation for a particular manufacturor.

its easy to install just make sure you back up everything first using the backup wizard.
remove the case at the bottom then unscrew about 5 screws then slide it out and slide the new one in.
it will then format I would say its a good idear to format 10GB for linux even if its unlikey you will install it as you would have to backup then reformat.
