Basically, you just want to make sure that the partitions still match up.

Here, you have a single root filesystem plus swap area.  If you partition your 
new drive the same, you can probably leave this alone.  If you partition 
manually, you may have swap on partition 2 so you would need to change 
"/dev/sda5" to "/dev/sda2".  You can get the partition information from the new 
drive with eg. "fdisk -l /dev/sdb".

Note that with 2 drives you will probably have sda and sdb; if you have your 
new drive connected externally it will probably be sdb but when you move it 
inside will become sda.
