HOW DO I GHOST MY NEW HD- AND SET IT UP TO DUAL BOOT?

Question

Iinstalled 80 Gig hardrive in slave position and want to copy (ghost) the C drive 6 gig.

What is the proceedure for making the copy and being able to switch out the small C drive for the new larger one ??? How do I make the 80 gig the master C drive after copying the data so 'puter will boot

If I may, one more question.....is it possible to load both win 2000 and win 98 so I can switch between them depending on the hardware and programs I want to run?

If yes..........some hints please.
