To get the answer to your questions about what external case you need for
the drive, the drive itself must be identified, by type and interface.
As you say the computer is older, I could *guess* that you have a parallel
ATA (PATA) 3 1/2 drive and tell you to get an external case for that kind of
drive that will allow you to connect it to a USB port (presuming the
computer you intend to connect it to has USB ports).

To make answers you get more than speculation, you need to provide details.
If you can't figure out the details, I suggest you take the drive to a local
computer store, show it to them, and ask them to put it into a case.
