The way I always do this is to slave the new drive to the original, then run a backup of the complete c: drive to the new one. Then restore the backup to the new drive, sys the new drive, and you should be set. If you don't have the room or the backup software, you can use xcopy to do this - I think the command line is xcopy32.exe c:\*.* d:\ /h /i /c /k /o /r /y
You can do an xcopy /? from the dos prompt for an explanation of the switches.
Once the files are transferred, jumper the new drive as the master and try it (leave the old one in (jumpered as slave) until you know it works)
