need to get a bigger hard drive for my powerbook (currently have an 80 gig)..

I'm going to have it professionally installed, BUT.. i need to know if I can transfer my adobe suite (photoshop cs2, imageready cs2, etc..) as well as microsoft office to the new drive w/o having to install it. The reason I ask is I had all my software stolen by a past roomate, and really dont feel like having to buy it again. I would also like to transfer ALL my songs to it as well.

so can this be done?

Yes. You should be able to use it without having to re-install. However you should make sure to copy all the content (System & User) folders to the new HD.
