Replace HDD


I have an old pc running Debian Woody and I have 2 questions.

Firstly, the hard drive ios quite old and become quite noisy, I suspect it
is on the way out.
What is the easiest way to replace it ?
It only have 2 partions, one of them a swap.
The new drive is slightly bigger.

Secondly, complied the kernel last January, 2.4.18, I noticed during an
'apt-get update' that kernel-source-2.4.18 was downloaded, presumably it has
changed, should I recompile ?
What is the correct process for this ?

Do I just untar and use the existing .config ?
