    Can I install my new hard drive then boot my Snow Leopard install disks and install SL on it, then just use Time Machine to get back my old information from my old hard drive? Or is that more complicated?

    yes you can do that, i mentioned earlier. but it takes longer.

    snow leopard install - around 20 mins, maybe more

    restoring backup - depends on size of back up, can take hourrs

    cloning drive - Snow Leopard install is unneccassary (you are cloning a drive which already has it installed) so you save a bit of time. still takes a long time to clone.

    I tried cloning to the new hdd but there was no choice for it in SuperDuper! It would only let me create new disk image and then it still wasn't working.

    No but it shows up in Disk Utility. When I attach the firewire cables it says with an !, cannot be recognized or something like that.

    you need to format it with disk utility to HFS+ Mac OS Extended (Journaled) first, then.

    Time Machine restore would be the "Apple way" to go. get a cup of tea or something in the mean time, it'll take a while to restore.
