Need advice on copying a HD

I have an old Dell Latitude Notebook with Windows 2000 and a pile of applications, programs and data.

I am looking to get a new (used) computer, similar but still small, although the HD will be slightly larger (going from 4 gig to 12 gigs).

What I would prefer to do is simply mirror copy my old HD to the new HD. However, I do not have a writeable CD or DVD on the old system, so something like Ghost will not work for me. What I need is some software that will mirror copy the HD using a cable system (USB or serial or whatever).

Does such a program exist? And will it work if the drives are not the same size? Obviously, I need to make an exact copy, so files in use and registry entries also need to be copied.

Thanks,
Paul
