Its a Fujitsu MPC3032at and it was on Win98se
I have a Win98se disc but none for any other
such as sound or video >>>

Download this little utility click here

It will tell you the name of your graphics and sound cards (and everything else). Post details here and I'm sure somebody can find the drivers for them. Save the drivers to a floppy before you swap HDDs.

I've just had a look on the Fujitsu site and their DiskManager(copy's your old drive to the new(Fujitsu)one)isn't free anymore. They're doing it through Ontrack at $14.95, about a tenner.

have a try when i get chance, do I still need a driver for the HD or will one of those you list
do it? also thanks Belatucadrus I will download

The program if you e-mail me saves all your drivers that you have now got on your computer, so you can restore them from the backup it makes and you do not need any drivers only a 133 ata if that is what you will be getting, you should be able to download a 133 from the drive manufactores site
