      Either backup the contents of the hd to a server and then retrieve to the new hd or use laplink. Is the other hard drive in a machine? Is the current laptop on a network?
      If not, I suggest you get your hands on a zip drive or some other storage device.

      if you can attach the hard drives to each other by the cable from the mother board or buy one that has two connectors. you can use ghost or drive copy and there are alot of other software that will copy a drive compleatly. and alow you to use the larger hard drive.

      Powerquest has a product called Diskcopy which works very well in these situations. You will need to physically connect the two drives by cable. If you are using windowsNT you can also use ROBOCOPY.EXE on the resource kit cd. This will copy all the files over while retaining all permissions as well. In this case, I would have a new operating syem installed on the new drive and then just move the pertinent data over.
      Good luck!
