Easiest way to do this would be to connect up the new hard disk as a secondary (slave) drive and copy the entire contents over. Some files wont copy, but dont worry about this as those files are created upon boot in Windows 98. Once all the files are copied over, you can swap the drives around, so the new drive becomes the primary, you can run the secondary drive as a slave (data) drive if you want, but that isnt necessary!
