    How do I make an image of my current HD, put it on my external, and then restore it on the new HD? Obviously, since the new HD is blank, is there anyway to use the Leopard boot dvd to restore the image to the disk?

    If so, what program can I use to make the 1:1 copy of my HD?

    Thanks

    SuperDuper and Carbon Copy Cloner will both do it for free.

    Or use Disk Utility. It too is free, and is already on your OS by default.
