I know the cleanest way is to reinstall the OS and then restore data,
etc, but I'd rather move the installation than reinstall everything.

I've tried:

Ghost - Bombs at different locations

Ghost for Linux + gparted - This seems to transfer everything ok. Then I
tried to use gparted to check the file systems and resize them. Problem
is this results in:
Unable to open /dev/sr0 read-write (Read-only file system). /dev/sr0 has
been opened read-only.
/dev/sr0: unrecognized disk label

sr0 is a CD writer. It's probably not what you want to run gparted on

okay, so I can safely ignore those.

Anyway, I was able to get this working. I had to edit menu.lst and
change the boot partition. Then I had to change /etc/fstab. All appears
to be good now.
