I have a 300 GB Seagate Ultra ATA/100 hard drive.

Is that going to be easy to install in my G5 Quad?

Thanks, and sorry for my ignorance.

You can buy a SATA->IDE adapter for like $25 bucks. It is a tight squeeze, but may work. A ATA card may also work since the drives are right above the expansion slots. There are also 3rd party drive mounts so you can install more than 2 hard drives in a G5. That might be the easiest solution but also the most expensive.

^^ One more quality post from the desk of Ebby. ^^

Firewire enclosures are getting cheaper, and they don't involve doing things inside your G5's case that it wasn't designed to do.
