Yes it's possible and really easy.
There are several ways to do that, however in your case "dd" would fit (do "man dd").
Assuming that "hda" is the disk you want to copy from, and "hdc" is the destination disk you want copy to, type the following command as "root": (without the quotes)
" dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdc "
Note that this will override your hdc disk with data from hda.
alternatively you can specify a partition to copy from and to copy to
IE: " dd if=/dev/hda1 of /dev/hdc5 "
and so on... find out more reading "man dd"

Terminology:
hda -> Master hard disk drive in first IDE device
hdb -> Slave hard disk // // // IDE //
hda1 -> 1st partition on "hda" (see "hda" above)
hdc -> Master hard disk drive in second IDE device
hdd -> Slave // // // // //
