FC2 to new drive boot it to a Knoppix CD and do "dd if=/dev/hda of=/dev/hdb" change the source drive from /dev/hda to whatever yours is, change the dest drive to your new one. this is assuming your dest drive is as large or larger as the source drive. don't have either of the drives mounted during this. this way, you're not depending on a system possibly running on a flaky drive during the copy.
