QS G4 Hard Drive Questions!

Long story short, my current PMG4 is busted and I bought a new one, it should be arriving here on Thursday. The one I'm getting only has a 40GB HDD, but the one I have has a 200 GB HDD. I was thinking of transferring the 200GB into the new one when it comes. I've never done a HDD replacement in a computer before, could someone post the steps to transferring? I'm also nervous about the software end. I have some files on the 200 GB that I want to keep, what options would I choose in Disk Utility once I plug the disk into the new G4 to keep the old stuff on? Thanks for all responses in advance.

EDIT: They are both Dual 1.0 GHz QuickSilvers, so there should be no compatibility issues.
