    yes its very easy to do... you wil need a program called Partition magic or any program that deals in partitions (someone might be able to show you a free piece of software that can do the same thing) and you should be able to copy your windows partition over to the new disk pretty easy :D

    Never used ghost, but I can assure you that Partition Magic works well!
