Please can someone give me some advice -

I have a Toshiba PIII 650 running WinMe and would like to change my 10gb drive for a 40gb 5400.

Do I need to worry about things like -
extra heat ?
increased power requirements ?
Toshiba has 44 pins connection,
Seagate/Samsung have 40 ?
ATA33 change to ATA100 ?

and/or anything else?

Any words of wisdom gratefully received.
