Default Laptop Harddrive Compatibility

I just got a laptop from my sister that she found. It's nothing special at all, but I'll use it to run Linux since my desktop can't (The distros I want have a problem with my GeForce 6800). The only problem is that the HDD is shot. I want to buy another one but I want to make sure that ATA-6 is what will work with it. I'm not familiar with laptops so I just want to make sure i don't buy an incompatible part. Not quite sure what standard the HDD I have now is, but the model is MK1016GAP and it's a Toshiba. The laptop itself is Toshiba Satellite Pro 4340 P650. Thanks in advance for your time.
