[SLE] rsync procedural thing - OT?

Hello SuSE people,
I know this has been discussed a thousand times already, and I have reviewed
60+ archived email messages, and looked at the man page a couple of times
about this subject/procedure. I am still unsure.
Here is my situation. Added a brand new 40 gig hard drive to the system. Plan
to only format it to ext3 using Yast. Now I want to copy my entire SuSE 9.2
which is all on one partition with the exception of /swap, is presently on
hda2, over to the new drive and let it reside there as an operating OS.
The procedure would be to open a console as root, and then issue an rsync ( +
unknown options) / /dev/hdb command, and if this is correct, which I really
don't think it is, and then after copying cd into /etc/fstab and edit the /
partition and the /swap partition. Then cd into /boot/grub/Menu1st and edit
that also to make it bootable.
Then what about /proc ? Does that get copied over? and should it be?
I am only a basic CLI guy.
If anyone has any better solutions I would like to hear them.
