norton ghost 2002: trying to ghost an os config to a larger partition

    First of all sorry if this was the wrong group to post to but I need
    some help. I have spent a while configuring my windows 2000 system
    properly where all of my software works the way it needs to. I have a
    20 gig drive partitioned 4 ways. 1 is a 3gig fat32 drive which I use
    as my "install" partition. All my programs I copied to this partition
    so they would load faster than cd rom installs next I have 2 8gig
    partitions each with the os configured the way I wanted. What I would
    do is experiment with a configuration and if it worked I would then
    ghost it from one 8gig partition to the other 8gig partition for safe
    keeping. The last partition is just 1 gig and I use this drive for
    backing up emails security keys and settings, etc. the 3 gig and the
    1 gig partitions are fat32 so I can get to them from dos while the two
    8gigs are ntfs. Now that I have the systen configured perfectly I
    wish to buy say an 80 or 120 gb hd and ghost the working ntfs
    partition to a new, larger partition, say 40 gigs and basically
    duplicate the drive configuration just on a larger partition. I have
    read conflicting threads some say I can others say I can't with norton
    ghost 2002. Is this possible? If so I just need to be made aware of
    any cautions. The data is more important than the drives so I can't
    risk losing it but the hdd s getting old. Any ideas?

    If this is not with norton ghost 2002 then which software will do it?
    norton ghost 2003 or 200whatever?

    Thanks in advance.
