Backup entire hard drive?
My current hard drive is an internal 120 GB hard drive. It has 2 partitions, one housing Windows XP Pro and the other housing Fedora Core 5. If I bought another hard drive, say 300 GB or so, how would I go about backing up my current hard drive so that I could boot off of the backed up one in the future? Basically I want to copy everything on the current hard drive - not just files, but the boot record, everything, so it's bootable. If the new hard drive is bigger, will this cause a problem? Will I have to make partitions first?
Thanks in advance.
