Hard Drive compatibility

I've just dissassembeled my laptop and took the hard drive out off it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136391

Would it be compatible with the sata 6gb/s?

If it is, can I safely extract the things I have there to my computer? I'm a bit worried since it still has windows xp in it and I'm plaaning to use it for a linux dual boot on my computer

It will work in your Desktop to extract the data, It will also work on 6gb/s ports, It will just run at 3gb/s.

Youll be fine, lol.

Alright, just making sure
