ghosting partition

I have Linux installed on /dev/sda4 (10gb). Now I want to ghost that partition and move all files to /dev/sda1 (25gb) and use /dev/sda1 as primary partition for Linux. What software should I use?

Look for a thread here at LQ called "Learn the dd command", you can Google it also and it will come up.
