partiton resizing question



The hard disk in my server/gateway started developing bad sectors and making 
very strange noises the other day..  anyway i got a new drive and copied over 
the partiton containing linux (ext3) onto the new drive using norton ghost 
which resized it from 500 odd Megabytes in size to 20 Gigabytes, the new 
drive works great but i have a few concerns since ghost knows nothing of 
ext3..

since the size of the partition has changed, will i need to recreate the ext3 
journal? If so how do i do it? 

if yes to the above question then will mounting the partition as ext3 with an 
incorrect journal do any damage? i had to do this once to change fstab.
