Fitting new hard drive and OS

I have a 10Gb hard drive fitted that has Windows 95 running on it. I have acquired a 15Mb drive and a new copy of Windows 98 SE. What I envisage is fitting the new drive in addition to the original, putting Win 98 onto the new drive, transferring items from the old to new drive, then having the new drive as the bootable master and the old drive as the slave (and presumably dumping the Win 95 on the old drive). Am I thinking right here and if so, can anyone talk me through it or point me in the right direction procedurally? Thanks.

I think your best bet would be to install your new drive as a slave and then xcopy or xxcopy all your old drive to new drive, change the new drive to master and old drive to slave and then use a Win98 upgrade cd to put Win 98 on and then reformat the old disk.
