Hi all,

I just got a much bigger drive for our BSD box here, getting ready
to move a lot more stuff over to it.

What is the best way to move the current system and data to 
a new drive? This is a replacement, not a second drive.

I'm been doing some reading and thinking that I can put the new
drive in another machine, install a minimum BSD system on it,
then put it into the real machine as a second drive and do a dump
to it of the entire first drive? Then just install it as the first drive
and firing the machine back up?
