To move disks around, I thought that tar can do the job pretty well. dd will
create you a 2 G partition on your 4 G disk... if the geometry does not get
fsck*d in the process...
But, you can try to do
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb
If you intend to keep the bigger disk as sdb , then you will need to twaek
fstab and your boodloader as well.
