Create a booth floppy and boot off of it and clone the old drive to the new drive.

If you dont have floppy, boot from Ghost CD. Hook the external closure with new drive at usb port, and remember to make sure all usb options enabled in bios.

Acronis True Image would support this configuration.  Aside from Backupexec for tape libraries,  Acronis is the only product I use for backups.  Try the demo and I think you'll find it's very easy to use.

Yes, you can do that. Put new drive in usb enclosure, then connect to laptop. Insert Ghost Cd in DVD/Cd drive, set boot order in bios to boot from DVD/CD. Power up system and follow on screen instructions. During Ghost wizard:

- Choose copy DISK to DISK (dont select partition to partition).
- Check copy MBR
- Set Active
- Do Not Assign Drive Letter !

After done clone, remove old hard drive off system. Remove new drive out of usb enclosure, place in system. Power up .... you should see your windows Os and everything from old hard drive on new drive.

Clone in windows is good but from DOS would be easier and less error. So if you already haave Ghost in windows environment then hook the new drive and start ghosst wizard as I listed above.
