ghosted drive and a new hard drive

Alright, I am going to ghost my 80gb IBM 120gxp, and i am ordering a 120gb SATA western digital hard drive. the ghosted image from the 80gb, can I remake the old drive on the new drive, even though they are different?

i've had no problem blasting images to different size drives..... i believe the only problem is when your image is one a drive where like say 40 gigs was used (in other words filled with data)......and you were trying to put it on a 30 gig

but no if your going from 80 to 120 it should work fine.... i blast images using the enterprise edition all day long to comps with different hdd all the time

I just used norton ghoast to go from a 30GB HDD to a 160GB HDD. The only problem I had was getting Win98 to reconize a drive bigger than 136GB. As long as norton reconizes your both drives there should be no problem.
