Default Help with new S-ATA HDD

Currently I have a Western Digital 80GB IDE hard drive w/ Windows XP Pro and all of my information on it. I recently received a Western Digital 80GB S-ATA hard drive that is brand new.

I was wondering what I would need to do to copy all of the old IDE drive to the SATA drive without having to reformat or lose any data. Is that possible?

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me". -John 14:6

Using a program like Norton ghost will transfer your info to one drive to another
