Welcome to the forum! You can find Dell's service manual for the 1011 here. This will tell you how to replace any component. The hard drive is pretty easy.
The drive is a standard SATA 2.5". I believe the height is 9mm. It's really not possible to say what is "the cheapest that will work", as that can be almost anything. You will want to select a capacity and then see what is available. Hard disk prices are fairly high right now due to the flooding in Thailand affecting manufacture, but are starting to drop.

So I replaced the memory with a crucial 2gb, all went well. Still running very slow. I read the hard drive and it said it's a 160GB. I'm starting to remove the Dell support center software and some other minor things like Bing to see if it helps. Any other things I should get rid of that are not needed from Dell etc. Oh it also has that Nickolodian them, my daughter grown out of. What about these programs can they be removed, Dell touch Pad, Java, Star dock mycolors, windows live sync, windows live upload tool, windows live sign in assistant, mighty magoo, guffins, microsoft net framework 1.1, 2.0,3.0 and 3.5.
