I initially assumed I could upgrade with:
dd if=/dev/hdb of=/dev/hda

It was really slow, and I hope it didn't mess with my new HD. Anyway I
interuptted that process as it was taking far too long, and proceeded to delete
partitions and create new ones and cp -ax stuff across.

Using /dev/hda
Information: The operating system thinks the geometry on /dev/hda is 
14593/255/63.  Therefore, cylinder 1024 ends at 8032.499M.
(parted) print
Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-114473.460 megabytes
Disk label type: msdos
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.031  19100.720  primary   ext3        boot
2      19100.720  19579.218  primary   linux-swap
3      19579.219 114470.969  primary   ext3
(parted) resize 3 19579 114470
No Implementation: This ext2 filesystem has a rather strange layout!  Parted 
can't resize this (yet).

Now where? :)
