is there a software like the PC ghost to copy HD to HD using software and how would I connect the HD together to transfer for the ibook.

1) Carbon Copy Cloner

2) Get an empty external Firewire 2.5" drive enclosure, install new drive, clone internal to new external then swap the drives physically. You'll end up with your original drive in the external case as a backup / transportable drive.
