Transferring from one HD to another, WinXP-wise

On my current HD, I use WinXP Pro. A new HD just arrived and chances are it will be installed by tomorrow. My question is, is there a proper way to transfer the data from my old hd to my new hd, so that everything will run correctly? Because, and I won't think common sense, if I copied directly - Old HD to New HD - I would have to completely reinstall WinXP Pro.

So the main question is: Is there a proper way to transfer my current OS + data to a new hard-drive W/O going thru the installation process of re-doing XP Pro on my new hard-drive?
