Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Use a bootable CD (e.g. SystemRescueCd from http://www.sysresccd.org/Main_Page and use `cp --archive SOURCE DEST` to copy the root partion of your old hd to the new one. After that you mayby have to adjust your /etc/fstab, /etc/lilo.conf on the new hd and finaly you have to run `/sbin/lilo -r <mount point of your new hd>`.
Check the connections for the HD making noises and make sure your pc power supply is not going bad. I have ended up with ps that go bad because of poor quality or wild surges in power inspite of surge protection. Luckily good PSs are available and a good investment.
SMART disk check old HD(if it is enabled) can tell you if HD is going bad. Good luck.
