I thought I'd clone to Superduper on the new drive as an external drive. Boot successfully and then swap drives so the new drive is internal and the old drive is external. I'd eventually wipe the old drive and use it as a portable drive.
As long as your system is running fine, there is no reason to "Fresh" install Lion. Do as you've outlined, & you'll be fine.
You are aware that NONE of your PPC apps will work under Lion, if you have such, correct?

Thanks. I've actually only been a Mac guy for 2 1/2 years and have only owned an Intel based Mac so I think I'm OK on the PPC side, no?
My wife wants to be able to use the new iAuthor book app.
