...Tower or iMac or...? If you have the tray drive iMac G3 that you want to put a Laptop cd drive in-yes. If you have a tower- you can more than likely put in a desktop CD/DVD drive. If you have a laptop you can likely put in a Laptop CD drive.

Its easy with a G3 PowerBook, the drive caddy comes off with fou screws. Gotta pick the right drive though.
Towers are even easier. iBook would be a bit more tricky. Have to make a bezel.

You eed to pick a drive that you know will work for any Mac though...
