Now that I have my laptop back, now I want to put a new larger drive in it.

Ideally, I would like to:  copy /dev/sda1 to /dev/sdb3
                           remove the 120GB drive
                           install a 250GB (or larger)
                           user the USB stick to formatand
                                        partition the new drive
                           copy /dev/sdb3 to /dev/sda1

Can that be done?

If not, how can I get my current set up to a new drive?
