Transferring to a new startup drive


I have a PowerMac G4 with MacOS 10.3.8, and my startup disk is rather small (40 gb as I recall). It's almost completely filled up with apps, photos, music, etc. So I am planning on purchasing a larger HD, and installing that as the startup disk. Here's what I want to do:

- Clone absolutely *everything* on my current Macintosh HD to a new drive
- Name the new startup disk the same as the old one ("Macintosh HD")
- Take out the old (small) startup disk, boot up from the new one, and have everything work magically and happily

Is it fairly reasonable to expect to be able to do this? Will SuperDuper be able to do these things for me without too much trial and error? I'm a pretty tech savvy guy, but fiddling around with startup disks is not something I've had to do before, so I want to make sure I do it right.

Any advice and comments are greatly appreciated!
