New Disk

I have a 160GB sata drive in my Ubuntu 8.04 server that I just got a
replacement (500GB) sata for.
There isn't anything on the 160 G drive, but it is mounted at /dev/sdc1.
To replace it with the larger drive, can I just down the system, replace the
hardware and bring the server up again?
Or should i unmount the 160 and remove the fstab entry and then replace the
hardware. I'm thinking I'll probably have to set the UUID and do the fstab
entry manually once the system comes up again
(unless gparted can do that)

Thanks for the input - as always.
