Transfere server from 20GB -> 40GB


Hi,
I have a linux firewall etc. server running on a 20GB hardisk.

The disk is a bit noicy, so I bought a 40GB disk.

Now I want to get the system from the 20GB disk onto the 40GB disk, with minimum effort

On Microsoft systems I have used ghost to take an image of the small disk, and then dropped the image with ghosts onto the bigger disk.

But then I only have had one partition on the disk.

How shall I do this now, as there is multiple partitions?

I guess ghost should work with linux also?

Thank you.

My first disk is actually only 6GB.

I did not get the down load of SystemRescueCd, but I took an ghost image and dumped it on the 40 gig disk.

But it does not boot. Only thing I can see is the text
"Grub"

And then the system freezes

I can get both disk installed at the same time.

Please can some one give me easy intructions how to get the Linux system running from the 40gig disk. I would not want to re-install Linux

Thank you.
