open source hard drive cloning software?

I am going to date myself here...Last time I cloned a hard drive I used GHOST 4.0. Please recommend an open source hard drive cloning software that will enable me to do the following:

Copy my current 30GB hard drive to a 500GB hard drive leaving all my files and applications in tact. I would love something that basically takes an image, drops it on the larger drive, and then I just physically just switch the hard drives and boot from my new 500GB drive.

Acronis® True Image free trial will do that nicely

you can use ghost 3(or 2003) for dos with a winme or win98 boot cd!
It's only one file .. ghost.exe that works under dos.

As for open source, i really don't know!

Driveimage-xml is by far and a way the most proven of all the above. Go to runtime.org and grab it and don't worry about the details.

Ghost Suite free-trial is fully functional and is sufficient for your purposes:

Just want to reiterate 3mp3rors mention of clonezilla.  We LOVE it here, and the alternative version is built on ubuntu so it's got massive driver support for anything we throw at it (ssd's Intel Rapid Storage, AHCI, Raid controllers, etc)
