I have a FreeBSD 6.2 Release box with a single ide that has user data 
and the FreeBSD OS on a hard disk that is failing.  I need advice on the 
best way to clone the entire disk (or at least the data) onto a larger 
ide disk drive, then pull the failing disk and replace it with the 
clone.  What is the best way in FreeBSD to do that?
