Accelerate Your Mac have a searchable database of drives and which Macs 
they work with. They also have links to soft ware which will enable 
iDVD to be used with some unsupported (by Apple) Macs. Finally they 
also have links to pages which will show you how to change over your 
drive. Apple also has pages with instructions on how to swap drives 
over. I have done it and I have five thumbs on each hand, its very 
easy. The only thing to be really careful about is that you follow the 
instructions about static electricity discharge religiously.
