[nSLUG] dd: disks of different sizes

I've spent my Christmas and Birthday money on a 160Gb ATA drive so I 
can upgrade my basement server from 8Gb and, among other things, hold 
my music collection.

Awhile back (but I can't find it in the archives) there was a 
discussion about using dd to copy disks. Given the power that dd has 
for good, and for evil, I'm looking for advice on what parameters and 
watchouts there might be.
