Moving from old Harddisk to New-one

Hello
i have a Mailserver running on Debian 5 and jfs as filesystem.
The Harddisk is an old 80GB IDE Model, nearly end of life.
Now i want to buy a new one, and transfer the complete Data.
The dificult is, that everything is on the root filesystem and the
Harddisk must be bootable after all.
