Generally you can get this utility for free from the hard drive manufacturer.
Also, Digital Dolly has been highly recommended here.
Also, there's a freeware tool called DriveImageXML at http://www.runtime.org
Personally, I use the Acronis tools for my needs, but they are payware.
But, this begs a question - Are you trying to save the pain of reinstalling everything - or are you trying to save a bunch of data.
If it's just data - copy it all to CD's and then install the OS on the new drive fresh.
If it's to save the pain of reinstalling - please read this article so you can avoid some of the pitfalls: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/moving_xp.html
Generally, when switching/copying an OS from one hard drive to another it's best to remove everything possible from the hardware list before transferring it to the new hard drive. This shouldn't be a huge problem since you're only changing the hard drive - but be aware that this process doesn't guarantee that your data won't be destroyed in the process.
