Question Migration to larger HDD

Greets all

I currently have RH7.2 running on a 1.2GB harddrive but I want to migrate it to a larger drive without having to reinstall from scratch. I am planning to use Ghost 7.3 for cloning and in the past it allows for the creation of larger partition when Im migrating a Windoze setup from a small drive to a larger one.

My question is if I clone the drive with GHost and allow it to automatically recreate larger partition on the new drive (done on a ratio system), will this work? If not, what method can I use.

Thanks in advance

That depends on whether or not Ghost can resize the type of filesystem you're using (probably ext3). You could just use linux to create the partition and copy all the files over. Then you just have to set up the boot loader and you're done.
