Make a copy of entire hard disk


My hard drive for my SuSE 8.1 server is slowly getting full. So I now would like to replace my 40 gig Maxtor with a 160 gig. Now I want only one drive in my server. So I need to copy the entire system to the new HD.

I searched for topics about this and I found that I should use Partimage. That will create a image cd or something. But how can I fit a 40 gig HD on one cd. That will at least take about 50 cd's and that just isn't realistic.

So I guess I should use a program like Norton Ghost.

Please help me with this, thanks.
