Probably a normal IDE hard drive. Just install Linux on it and it'll auto detect Windows and you'll get the option at startup of which to use.

Is this what you mean?

You can use whatever brand of hard drive you like. It will probably be a slave, but you can set that up however you want. When you are installing Linux, it will give you the option of which hard drive to use.
