I am looking for the easiest way to copy a fresh working FreeBSD 8* HD 
install (Manolis version) to a bigger HD that I found.

I plan to have the new  HD in the same box for doing this copy.

Can I use sysinstall to make the new default slices on the big HD and 
then move the OS and directories/files to them?

What command (utility) do I use? dd or cp or some other to copy the files.
