Default Moving Windows?

Hey guys,
I got a new 320gb Seagate HDD for my birthday, and I need some advice. I currently have a 160gb HDD that came with my computer, which works fine, and I'd like to continue to use it. How I can move EVERYTHING from my old 160gig drive to my new 320gig drive? And then have windows recognize the new drive as C, then forget about the old one. I'm going to install Ubuntu Linux on my old drive, so I can have one ext3 drive, and one NTFS drive. Is there any software that would allow me to do this? I'm currently just running Windows XP Home, with the whole 160gig drive partitioned as NTFS.

Any help is appreciated,
Thanks, Jonny
