If all you're doing is replacing the hard drive that's already there, then you're just performing a basic hard drive swap. Make sure you've got the right size (a standard 2.5" 9.5mm laptop drive), and you're good to go after [guide|751|installinginstalling the OS]OS. I personally prefer to just use a Time Machine backup to restore to the new drive.

I have become aware that the OS install is quite a bit different for Lion than for Leopard and Snow Leopard, thanks to the other people providing answers. I would trust someone more fluent in Lion than myself for OS install tips, but my answer about the physical hard drive is still correct.
