Can I really just copy the hard drive onto an external drive, and then move it all to the new drive once it's installed? I don't see how that could work, because wouldn't everyone be sharing photoshop and MS word that way?

Will I need to reinstall OSX lion?

Thanks again.
Yes you can transfer the data through the migration assistant. You will need to install Lion first and transfer the data once the installation is finished (you will get the option to do so then).
