check the archives. i got a lot of good help recently on migrating a
partition. the course i chose was a mixture of tips. your ideal
solution might be other that mine. search the archives for partition migration.

essentially, create a filesystem on the new disk, set up a mount point,
mount it, cp -r the data, edit fstab to reflect the new arrangement.
don't delete the original until you're sure the new partition is extant.
