Is Mac hardware backwards compatible?

I have been given an old Powerbook 3400c/180 but it has no HDD.

If I buy a HDD for this machine what 'gotchas' do I need to look out for? I have never owned anything from Apple and know less than zilch about them.

Thanks for any and all ideas/suggestions, even if it's just to tell me I'm am wasting my time
on this antique
