Here's a couple of suggestions for the partition:

Borrow Partition Magic from someone and resize the partitions (maybe
FIPS would work?)

One interesting way to copy files, which I have not tried, is to use a
piped tar. Brian Lavender had an example:

  tar cf - /var | (cd /newdisk/var/; tar xfp -)

I 'think' copying the file structure over this way preserves the file
bits (rwx & ownership).

Btw, if you come across a nifty GUI program that shows directory/file
sizes please pass it on to the list. I am sure there are X11 programs
out there, but I have not seen any good ones that do this.
