Until you find the mobo used,or the full title of the pc,eg,Time xyz....there is no way for checking if your pc could use 120Gb HDD.It might need a BIOS flash to cope with the large drive,it might not.

motherboard: msi ms-5182
processor: AMD K2-6
windows 98se

Chap here upgraded his HDD to 60Gb,didn't need a BIOS flash,so looks like you can go to your suggested size replacement.
