So I would use the restore feature? If so, once I have created the clone, how do I get it back to the hard-drive once it is installed? OR, do I have to clone the hardrive on to the NEW drive first, and then install it?
I guess you will use your old drive as external FW HD.
In that case:
1.Put your 60GB drive in fw case
2. Use disk utility or CCC to clone your internal drive onto new one.
3. swap them.
You won't need to do any restoring, your PB should boot without any probs.
WORD OF CAUTION:
By swapping drives you most likely will say bye bye to your warranty, as this is not user-servicable part.
If for any reason you have to send your machine to apple for repair don't forget to put the old drive back....
And one more thing, it takes a lot of time to open up 15" ALbook, and even more to put it all back without any gaps.
Label all the screws, and be careful not to bend these little hooks used to keep palmrest/keyboard in place (you'll see what i mean when you open it up)
