Replace hard drive / Re-install OSX how to?

I've got some issues with my MBP that will require a fresh install of OSX; however, since I have to re-install OSX, I figured I might as well upgrade the hard drive from the 120 gig to a 160 gig.

I use SuperDuper to make a full install of my hard drive on a regular basis.

I can not use the Migration Assistant or do a full restore, because there is something currently wrong with my network settings, so I want to setup everything fresh.

A couple of questions...

After installing the new hard drive and re-installing OSX, will I be able to cherry pick the files that I want to copy from my SuperDuper backup? I have an extensive iPhoto library of photos that I want to retain, so these files need to be restored.

I also have a WinXP guest OS installed in Parallels, so I want to copy this onto the new hard drive without having to re-install all the apps in it. I've got a posting on the Parallels forum requesting instructions on how to do this.

Any help appreciated.

You certainly should be able to copy over the contents of your iPhoto library and your Parallels disk images from the backup, yes. But it seems like it would be a lot easier to reset your network settings, rather than start from scratch...
