I just got an 80 external HD and was wondering how I can clone my hard drive to it. Is there a program like Ghost where it will create an image file of my hard drive? Do I need to use third party software or is there something with OS X that will clone it for me? Thanks.

Carbon Copy Cloner should be able to help you.

Or you could do it the old UNIX way by going into the Terminal and using rsync.
