I think you're making this harder than it has to be. Why not backup your old drive to an external via Time Machine? Then install the new drive and boot with your SL DVD (restart and hold "C"), go through the set up process and at the end allow it to restore from your Time Machine backup?
It's good to have the bootable clone as an additional backup, but can be problematic sometimes when transferring drives.
