install OS X on selected new drive
when prompted to migrate over data with time machine hook up whatever you've been using and choose that drive and you should be good to go.

I think.
Ok, I've never used time machine before, so I would need to figure out how that works. I use Carbonite to keep all my stuff backed up. Since I upgraded to Snow Leopard, I'm assuming I would use the Snow Leopard disk to boot from right? Sorry for these dumb questions, but I just don't know much about computers...LOL
