The best (PATA/IDE) HD would be 160GB/5400rpm Samsung HM160HC.
Or find someone who can SATA-mod your machine, after which you can use any SATA-I downwards-compatible HD or SSD.
Check out The Boardroom for Parts, Mods and Other Services.
I have two of them, all flashed into IBM firmware (but you only get 128gb available) and works with all stock T43/p/R52 systems after the firmware flash.
T23 PIII 1.13ghz 1gb W7
2xT43 14.1" 2.26 SXGA+ 2gb 1*fp W10
T530i 15.6" i7 16gb fp W10
A30p PIII 1.2 1gb W7 (IDTech)
T43p 2.26 2gb fp W10
Also if you aren't using the Ultrabay consider getting a PATA to SATA caddy and installing a cheap SATA HD. This is also a great way to install dual operating systems.
