What is the easiest way to upgrade a hard drive under linux?  I read
through the ldp/howto on hard drive upgrades.  I also ran across some
email on using parted.

Would it work to dd hda->hdb (where hda is old small drive, and hdb is new
larger drive) and then use parted to grow the desired partitions?  Can
parted be used for the whole job, i see there is an option to cp via

Looking for wisdom,
