Transfer SUSE to new hard drive

I have looked for a software program like Ghost to copy my SUSE 9.3 to a network drive but can not find any. How does one go about saving there setup so you can transfer it to a new bigger hard drive.

Thanks for the help.

Not actually tried it but many of your settings and preferences are stored in the /home directory. Copy this into your partitioned new drive (into /home partition) and you are part way there. Some of the gurus can give you the details i'm sure. (I can't)

This allows you to ask good the right questions, the thing I always find them most difficult.
